Magento Speed AFTER import

Has anyone noticed that Magento may run slowly for several hours after importing products? I have not verified this is when I have speed issues, but I feel like after I do an import of a larger number of products (say 1000+) Magento runs slowly for the next several hours.

Is it possible that Magento is still processing data or running processes after the import has completed? Perhaps it is building a database for the search function?

I am running Magento on a dedicated server with 2 gigs of ram.

If you have NOT noticed this and are reading this post, please reply and let me know.

I just wanted to update this post --- we made some of the changes recommended in the blog post regarding performance. The difference has been AMAZING --- I recommend making those changes—our website is more than twice as fast now.

can you give us some numbers like seconds for severals actions?

we have major speed issues - load of categorie takes bout 3 secs (this bout 2.5 secs to long for a onlineshop), bout 5 to 6 secs for detailview of a product (bout 4 to 5 secs to long) and adding stuff to cart up to 25secs and 15secs per step in the onepage checkout - thats way too long…

we have hardware which should be able to handle that stuff and have the cache loaded into ram and some stuff like that, optimized mysql server - and the page loads take way too much time…

makes me frustraded while developing and i think our customers while shopping…

If it’s verifiably and consistently running slower for a period of time immediately following a product import, my guess would be this is due to Magento & your database (depending on your database settings) not yet having cached all the new products and/or selection queries, and the speed increases as more get cached.

We a little better load times:

Catagories 2 seconds
3-6 seconds to sort using layered navigaiton

This is running on a dedicated server—Dual Xeon (2 x 2.4 Ghz), 2 GB RAM

I know this is not by any means wonderful, but believe it or not—it was much worse. By making the changes in the blog we have gone from a site I considered to be unusable to usable. As our database has grown (we now have 15,000 products) I have noticed some more slow down. I have made all of the changes suggested in the blog post on performance except the using “a memory-based filesystem for Magento’s var directory”

Noticed this also in Beta 1.1. After importing products my apache benchmarks are showing significant performance decreases.

Do you remember what blog post you read?  I would like to see what the recommended changes are.

Thanks
