Thread: Sort is noticably slower?

  1. #1

    Default Sort is noticably slower?

    Has anyone noticed an increase in runtime for sort? I'm having to sort large, 30+ GB text files, and I've noticed a substantial increase in the time needed to sort files in 11.4. Files that take maybe two hours to sort under previous conditions now take multiple hours. Any thoughts? Am I going crazy? Both? Thanks .

    Might want to make sort less nice. GUI elements may be using more time slices and giving less time to background process.

    Not everybody has a 30 GB file to sort ;-)

    If you can, you could install two minimal systems in the same computer: one
    11.4, another 11.3 or whatever you used before. Then run the test on both,
    using "time .... whatever" to time the process. Once done, report in Bugzilla.

    I remember that once a library in the released distro was a debug version
    of the library, which can be useful for factory. It could be something like
    that or some setting that they have forgotten to remove. You are in a good
    position to check this.

    I have a laptop with 11.2 and 11.4, I could test it if I had a big enough
    text file to sort.
