Poor performance on a big database
Mandatory: Shotwell version the issue was seen with
0.30.1 – “Celle”
The expected behaviour
When searching for a picture, I would like to have instant feedback on what I typed, and see the first few results within a few seconds.
What was actually happening
Searching for an image takes about 40 seconds, which seems like forever. Also, I get no feedback on what I have typed before the results are actually displayed.
Steps to reproduce the issue
I have a rather big database (~180k photos and 6k videos). That's most probably what causes the issue.
My PC is a Core i7 and I have a SSD for my /home folder. The pictures are on another drive.
I can provide more information if you need.
