The admin area of Magento seems painfully slow to me. Is there anything I can do to speed it up?

I agree.  Painfully slow.  How can we speed it up?

I agree, wait for version 1.1. You’ll see some improvements.
As we all know, Magento is in it’s early stages, speed improvements will come.
Have you considered a faster host that specialises in configured servers designed for Magento?

No doubt this isn’t the answer you want to hear but its the only one I’ve got for you. You can wait till version 1.1 is released and hopefully the promised speed improvements show up. Or, you can switch to a better hosting plan. I’m on a dedicated host and the performance in the admin area is supurb.

The beauty (in terms of flexibility on the front end, fast evolution on the backend) and beast (high cpu resource demands) of Magento lie in its reliance on an EAV-based db architecture:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Entity-Attribute-Value_model

Speed issues will not be resolved to a great extent until Magento reworks that paradigm from being highly abstract to being moderately or minimally abstract. They will have to make some hard decisions and change their backend philosophy a bit, but it can be done. I presented a quick sketch of a possible solution here:

Actually,

Just read and watched a video in the Magento blog where the team indicates that we can expect an “up to” 40% speed improvement in certain functional areas.

That’s great news!!

Hey Magentoservers, are you allowed to use Magento in your name? I got busted by them for buying a domain name with Magento in it.
