Incredibly Slow

I’m using 2.2.4 on a Mac requests are incredibly slow (~1 minute per page load). Its to the point where local is unusable.

I’ve tried the following:

  • Restarting computer
  • Restarting the site/VM
  • Enabling, disabling Faster Docker Images
  • Enabling, disabling IPv6 loop back
  • Enabling, disabling dev mode
  • Increasing VM memory

I have a dev site on linode and this is not the issue there.

@eanderson – Knowing some details about your Mac’s hardware would probably be helpful to the Flywheel team in seeing if they can help you out.

@eanderson — Have you tried with the last version of Local (v2.3.3)?

Thanks, I have not - I booted it up on a windows machine with the same slowness, so I’m assuming that its related to the DB/Code. But I’ll give 2.3.3 a try - I didn’t see anything in the changelog that touched on performance.

Thanks -

  • 2017 Macbook Pro running OS 10.13.4
  • 2.6 GHz i7
  • 16 GB 2133 MHz DDR3 Ram

For the VM I’ve allowed for up to 3 GB RAM, I’ll try bumping this up to 4GB this weekend.

I’m also going to be looking into plugins/DB queries as I mentioned in another post this slowness is also happening on a Windows Machine.


Man, 1 minute response times are real slow. I’m sorry to hear that! It looks like you’ve done quite a few things to get it faster. I wonder if you will get any improvements by upgrading to 2.4.0. The Preferred environment has MySQL 5.7 and since you mentioned looking into the queries, I wanted to point that out.
