    Hi Alex,

    Dataverse is not auto-saving as such. The Dataverse application is a multi-tier web application. The web application is essentially stateless - changes to a data flow and node configuration updates are secured in the Dataverse database component. Your browser is rendering the Dataverse web app and whenever a change is made the app uses REST API requests to update the 'back-end'. It is probably the round-trip latency for these requests and database updates that you are seeing. Work has been done to optimize the performance of these actions, e.g. by batching up multiple updates where appropriate, but there is almost always room for improvement. The available RAM and the speed of the machine's disk has a big impact on the overall performance, and a SSD provides improved responsiveness compared with using a traditional HDD. Would you be able to provide details of your machine - i.e. CPU, amount of RAM and disk type?

    Many thanks,

    Adrian

    Hi Adrian,

    Thanks for your response. I'm currently running 8GB RAM with an i7-4600 @ 2.1GHz, with an SSD.

    Just to clarify, the symbol which made me think "auto-save" is the rotating white arrows which appear where the green progress cirlce appears when running nodes. This often happens every every 2nd or 3rd click, and depending on the number of nodes in use, can take upwards of 10 seconds each time.

    Thanks,

    Alex

    Hi Alex,

    would you be able to provide an indication of the number of nodes within the data flow?

    Does the latency occur with specific data flows or does it occur if you create a new data flow and paste the code into a single node on the canvas?

     

    Thanks,

    Adrian
