I need to increase an MS Access database performance. (10 concurrent and 10 other users)
The BE (200Mb) is on a shared drive on a newish virtual server (sharing MS Exchange)
Assuming all the normal database optimizations are done, two questions:
1. will a dedicated server improve things much?
2. will an SSD (D: drive) on the new server (just for the Access BE) improve things (much) more (than a 10,000 rpm SATA drive) on this new box.
I realize the existing server specs are vague, but all expert comment and personal experiences are welcome.
Jim, 2 questions:
1. what does 'Modified all queries so they recost since the DB has grown?' mean?
2. Is the best way to implement 'a persistent connection to the BE' via a bound field on the main form to a 'dummy' BE table?
