I am using Ubuntu 14.04 LTS to test Manager Server. I have successfully tested the desktop version in both Ubuntu and Windows. To be able to recommend this software, I need to be able to successfully test a multi-user setup. I loaded the server version on my PC which runs Apahe web server on port 80, Webmin on port 10000, and some other services with no speed problems. I installed the server version of Manager and added “/usr/bin/mono /path/to/ManagerServer.exe -port 90 >>/dev/null 2>&1 &” to /etc/rc.local, then rebooted the pc (which is both my desktop and server.)
When my computer restarted, I accessed Manager by “http://localhost:90” which worked as quickly as opening manager on the desktop did. I created 2 users, and accessed manager using one of them. after successfully backing up the desktop version and restoring it to the server version I closed my web browser and accessed Manager from a windows PC using “http://192.168.3.125:90” where 192.168.3.125 is my server/pc IP address. I logged onto manager using the second user I created, then tested it. This seemed fine, giving acceptable speed for accessing the data remotely.
Next, I tested multi-user access. While user2 was still logged in, I attempted to login on the Ubuntu server/pc. The moment I logged in my server/pc slowed greatly, and the Windows pc Manger page stopped responding, then after waiting about 5 minutes began reporting connection errors and I/O errors. When I rebooted the system it began functioning as normal, but immediately slows down if 2 users are signed in.
I was using an older version of Manager and updated to 14.6.20 hoping that the newer version would help, but it didn’t make any difference in speed.
Do you have any recommendations which might make it possible for me to get a good test? Thanks!
By the way, as I have said before, Manager is great, and I’m impressed with the speedy updates.
