Hi Richard,

I am relatively new to galaxy so if you get a different response from one of the core team ignore this.

One thing I would check is the underlying database.
What do you have set for "database_connection" in your galaxy.ini file.

Especially if you are using the default sqlite this could be the issue. As that is store in a single file on disk.

Whichever database you have make sure it has enough resources to handle what will now be a large size.

Subject: [galaxy-dev] Slow repsonses viewing histories

Hi all,

I am having trouble right now with my own personal account on my production server. Grid refreshes are taking a huge amount of time (e.g. when viewing ‘saved histories’ or even generating the dataset list for a single history). My account is very full of data (1TB), could it be this?

There are no obvious messages in the logs though so I am a bit stumped as to why.I do not have the same trouble when impersonating other users with fairly full accounts. Perhaps a database issue (I do not know how to ‘cleanup’ the database or indeed Galaxy user accounts). Any thoughts?
