Marvelous Optimization #1

This is the first example I was showing in my session Marvelous Optimizations at Pause On Error [x] London 2011. I already wrote about this optimization some time ago. It’s the one that led me to unveil the Marvelous Optimization Formula. You can find the original article here: FileMaker Script Execution Time Cut From 5 Hours To 6 Seconds

I simply took the example and added FM Bench Detective into it to be able to exactly measure and examine what happens in the slow and the optimized script. Now you can watch the result in this video recorded at Pause On Error.

Note that you need to download 24U FM Bench Detective, install the included 24U Toolbox Plug-In (no registration necessary) and put the FMBench_Log.fp7 file into the same folder as the example for the precise measurements to work.

This optimization was the real start of my “mad optimizer” journey.
But it was really only a start.
Stay tuned, more marvelous optimizations will follow…
