Dear Team,

We are making huge interactive prototype,

but from past few month we are facing serious performance issue.

saving & simulating taking more than 8hrs,

kindly suggest the best possible ways to resolve this issue

Dear Shantunu,

We're sorry to hear you've been experiencing performance issues with Justinmind. Things that could be affecting performance are high item data masters, high amount of elements per screen and high-resolution images (even if they are resized to a smaller size). Also there aren’t any limitations on how many comments you can add though as you noted performance will be affected by a high number of comments.

A possible workaround to better performance is to increase the memory Justinmind uses. To do this, command-click on the Justinmind application and select 'show package contents'. Then, open the folder 'contents'. There, open the file Justinmind.ini and change the parameter Xmx from 1024m to 2000m. Another workaround would be to split your prototype file into different prototypes.


Best,

Dear Shantunu,


Also, if possible, can you send us your prototype so we can have a look? You can attach it in a .rar format, or upload it to a file sharing service such as Dropbox, and attach the link to it here.

I'm experiencing sluggishness, and my prototype is tiny. 3 Pages with just a few fields. No I'm not seeing 8 hours to save for instance (I would have switched back to Axure if I waited longer than 5 minutes).

The app overall just feels incredibly sluggish. I've modified the .ini file as suggested above. It seems to have sped it up a tiny bit, but not nearly how I would prefer the app to perform.

Mac 10.13.6

Can you attach the prototype here so we can see what might be causing the performance issues? You can compress it to .zip/.rar format.

I deleted the project, sorry; however, while at home, I installed Justinmind on my personal laptop (a 2013 MBP vs a 2017 MBP - both running 10.13.6 with 16GB RAM and SSDs), and to my surprise, although it's a much older machine, it was dramatically faster than my work laptop.

Some thoughts on my work laptop (2017 MBP 15", 16GB RAM):

1. My work laptop's drive is encrypted utilizing FileVault.

2. Resolution set to "more space" (3840 x 2160). However, I've reduced the resolution to "default" and I don't notice a change.

Again, most surprisingly, my personal laptop in other applications is a dog in comparison. I haven't specifically compared other Java apps though (which Justinmind is). Perhaps Java is just painfully slow on drives encrypted with FileVault? - never looked into it, so just a theory...


Any thoughts or suggestions?
