Resolve 9.1.1 DISK database poor performance
on Feb 25, 2013 at 10:16:38 pm

I work for a small company that is hoping to use the Resolve Disk Database to hold the projects on a shared location to incorporate it into our backup system without changing it, etc.

When we try and use the disk database our save times on projects move from 10-15 seconds to over 3 minutes. This really makes the DISK databases unusable.

We are grading 30 minute timelines with ~430 clips using Avid AAF to import footage.

Is there anything we can do to bring down our save times and project responsiveness without having to use the default database? Thanks for any help

It sounds like your connection to the other location is speed restricted. Is it a dedicated backup server? On 10gigE?
Have you looked into the PostGres database?

All connections are 10 gigabit ethernet - we are able to hold our media on that drive and we get playback of 1080p 25fps footage fine from it.

We are currently working from Resolves "Local Database" that comes in the ProgramData/Blackmagic Design folder. Performance from this database is fine - it also says it is a DISK database so I am unsure of what is going on.

I have not looked into the postgres database, is that held in a folder structure similar to the DISK database?

The PostGres DB is quite different to the Disk DB. It's not a simple file/folder but a full DB server. Have a look in the user guide for more detail.
But in the meantime, can you keep the Disk DB on the machine with Resolve and copy that folder with a script to your backup machine?
That will give you fast user access and reliable backup as well.
