Remote View text file delay (4 posts)

    When viewing a remote text file via Command-L or Remote>View, Fetch 5 exhibits a strange behaviour: 99% of the file loads quickly as in Fetch 4 but the last 1% takes a few seconds with the spinning beach ball. So my point is Fetch 5 is quite a bit slower viewing remote text files such as log files etc.

    Thanks

    That's interesting -- I have not seen that behavior myself. Would you be willing to collect some information about this problem for us?

    Thanks,

    I'd like you to run a program called Spin Control. It collects information when an application shows the spinning beachball. You can download Spin Control as part of Apple's CHUD package here:

    ftp://ftp.apple.com/developer/Tool_Chest/Testing_-_Debugging/Performance_tools/CHUD_4.1.1.dmg.bin

    Once you have installed the CHUD tools, run Spin Control and try to view a file with Fetch 5. If you get the beachball Spin Control should show an entry (named "Fetch"). Double-clicking that entry should give you information about what Fetch was doing -- you can email that information to bugs at fetchsoftworks dot com. Also, please mention how big the file that you were viewing was, and what version of Fetch you are running.

    Thanks for your help!
