We have 68 logbooks and currently 60 GB data total. We run it as well on a VM, in our case with 8GB RAM.
The speed of ELOG is mostly given by the filesystem: when we had AFS it was very slow. With NFS it was better. But we now use a local disk on the VM: that is much better.
If you want to have the best performance (upload of large files can still slow down all users) then I would recomment local SSD for the file system of elogd.

You might talk to your system administrator: they can likely provide a local SSD on the VM server host.

We're up to 30 logbooks, 3.2GB data total and Elog damen has now become slow. Performance stats show 100%CPU on startup then reduces. Searches and general UI activity is slow. It runs on a VM with 4GB memory allocated. Up to 15 concurrent users.

Trimming and archiving some data files may help but I gather overall this is underpowered hardware in this instance so what is recommended system requirements for a config like this?

  69535   Sun Jun 26 01:47:02 2022 Question Andrea Capraacapra@triumf.caQuestionLinux3.1.4-bcd7b50Edit entry from command line and appending attachment

I would like to edit an existing entry by adding new attachments at each call of elog from the command line.

If I issue

elog -h localhost -p 8XXX -l test -f /path/to/file_0.pdf -e N -x

and then 

elog -h localhost -p 8XXX -l test -f /path/to/file_1.pdf -e N -x

file_1.pdf replaces file_0.pdf, while I'd like entry N to have both pdfs.

Is there a workaround?

Using an LDAP browser I can connect to the DC without issue so not firewall.

I have a PDF file created by root which ImageMagic cannot convert to a .png file. If I do

convert img.pdf img.png

it works on my mac, but under RH7.4 the program goes into an infinite loop eating 100% CPU.

I attached the img.pdf, but compressed it to img.pdf.gz, otherwise I cannot post here.

Can anyone figure out why ImageMagick won't convert that file?

I have just setup a new ELOG server on another machine. I took the latest source code from here: http://elog.psi.ch/elog/download/tar/elog-latest.tar.gz. Compiled it and ran. 
Still the same problem with Safari.
