Why is eBay Blackthorne slow?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,
Just built a pretty nice system at work and ebay blackthorne is still slow.

I went from using a dual core AMD x64 3.0ghz (x250 CPU?? its not produced anymore) to the core i7-950 (3.06ghz).

RAM went from ddr2 4gb (2x2gb) to ddr3 6gb (3x2gb).

This whole upgrade started with the purchase of OCZ Vertex 2 SSD to replace the hard drive I killed when I accidentally knocked over the old baby slim line hp pc. Its a 120gb hdd.

With the old system, blackthorne would freeze up occasionally when trying to change some settings to listings ( I have thousands of items in the db). Now the program doesnt freeze up like at All but its still rather loading slow.


There is a significant increase but does anyone have any recommendations of how to make blackthorne as fast as my chrome browser? Thanks.

There arent any. That sounds like an Internet speed/connection quality issue on one end. Im going to assume you have passable internet (decent ping, decent UL/DL speed etc) and point the finger at them.
Perhaps blackthorne is just not fast enough for chrome and thats the end of it.

I thought of that, but I keep my database saved on the pc. It only pulls the picture listings from google servers. Everything else loads from the pc. We switched from Clearwire 4g hotspot to at&t dsl and there is no improvement in how the listings load.

I thought the picture loading from google slows it down, but thats not it because the pictures do;t have to be loaded first. I can open a template and revise it however I want and the picture will load in a few seconds usually.

Blackthorne lets me edit the inventory I have saved on my pc or I can load all my listings from the past 90 days which is about (9000+) listings. Once those listings have synchronized with my pc, editing or changing those listings online is blazing fast.

So its just editing the Database thats stored on the computer thats slow, and the old pc sucks compared to this and there is a slight improvement so maybe blackthorne just sucks at handling a big db?
