I have seen lots of discussions about this topic, but what about the latest version is it any faster?
From our experience when comparing with SG CU 4 2015 the new GS 2017 SR1 CU9 the old one is about 20% slower - on the server with the same specs.
Could anyone share some knowledge? What are your impressions in real production?
While there have been some performance issues switching to 2017, GS 2017 SR1 CU9 is fine and snappier in web ui use, in searches and in TM queries.
Of course I think it strongly depends on your database. If you have a very old database with a lot of data it could be slower. Also periodically rebuilding indexes on TM and performing a good maintenance on SQL Server helps.
We had a very very "ancient" database and at a certain point we decided to restart from scratch manually exporting and reimporting TMS to the new database. I have to say it took a lot of time but it was worth all the hassle. Right now our groupshare works like a charm!
So IMHO it strongly depends on the kind of data you have, but generally speaking GroupShare itself works fine in its CU9 version.
Thanks for sharing.
