»Networking quickbooks - network quality.
QuickBooks was always kind of slow in finding a customer in the list, if there were a ton of customers, say, 10,000+. Over network, even with GOOD gear, this worked TERRIBLY! AWFUL! I mean over one minute to find someone. In a retail environment, this rendered it WORTHLESS. I updated to QuickBooks Enterprise 13, and it is much better.
Just for shits and giggles, I put a garbage 10/100 $13 zonet switch in front of a 2nd 10/100 switch in front of a THIRD one - I'm looking at 9 ms of lag just to my router at this point, and I was still able to find customer X in a list of 17,553 customers in NINE SECONDS over network - faster than quickbooks 12 worked on the HOST machine!
Just incase someone else ever uses quickbooks and wonders how anyone gets by with this miserable, terrible database, the answer is version 13!--
