Ownloud much slower after upgrade from 8 to 10

I know this question as come up before but I am still stuck. This weekend I upgraded from owncloud 8 to 10. (I did screw up the upgrade so I ended up doing a clean install, re-creating the config, and then using occ to scan the files. Myself and several other people have noticed that the performance has got worse. Logging in as admin seems quick. If I login as myself (which is an LDAP account) the login takes about 15-20 seconds. Browsing and sharing files seems much slower as well and the iphone app is effectively unusable.

In the ldap config, under groups I can click “verify settings and count groups” and get a count of the number of ldap groups. The ldap search filter is “(&(|(objectclass=posixGroup))).” For users , if I click “verify settings and count users” it shows 0 users found. The ldap search filter is “(objectclass=*).”

My files folder has 167GB of data. One of the other users reporting problems has 22 GB worth of data.

Appreciate any help.

Did you upgrade to ownCloud Version 10.2.1?

I believe so. I used the yum repos so should have been the latest available.

“verify settings and count groups” and “verify settings and count users” functions are both working. I also refined the search paths to specify ou=people,o=mycompany and ou=groups,o=my company instead o=mycompany.

I can share folder with users and also notify users that the folder is available. If I share with a group, members of that group do NOT get access. If I notify the group when sharing a folder, I get a message that e-mail could not be sent to the members of that group - and it does show the group members so it clearly extracting the group list from the group.

@voyager45 Well, I assume you’re right. I did a similar observation when I upgraded from 8 to 9 a few years ago. I didn’t measure anything, it just felt significant slower. However, I think nowadays ownCloud is much smarter and does much more interior jobs as 8.x did.


maybe it’s just me but i can’t find a relation between the initial posting about “owncloud much slower” and the text about some LDAP configuration later?
