Has anyone looked at how to get admin to run faster? Our admin runs slow while the main site remains fast.

Hi, we find that the Fooman Speedster plugin helps speed up the back end.

Also, ensure that Gzip is actually enabled..

Hi.  Indeed when a large number of goods or attributes need to be saved, backend works very slow, as each time you save data the system re-indexes the goods through the entire catalog.
Asynchronous Re-indexing is a solution of this problem. When a product or category is saved it is not immediately re-indexed, but put into a queue. The queue is re-indexed in the background. This greatly speeds up the backend. This mechanism is implemented by using an extension of http://mirasvit.com/magento-extensions/magento-asynchronous-reindex.html
