Why are there so many zip files in my database? [Answered: see thread] Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
What is your network connection though? GPRS, Edge, 3G or Wi-Fi? Any of the first two are going to be slow(er) - GPRS in particular, 3G varies depending on the load from other users on the network at the time but should be reasonably fast and Wi-Fi should be fastest.
 
It's a wifi network, and my signal strength is fine, seeing as in the above tests I was about ten feet away from the router.
 
You might compare the speed of syncing using Bonjour. If it's significantly faster (which I would expect!), then the bottleneck is either your Internet connection (unlikely) or your WebDAV service provider (Box.net, in this case).
 
I also have like 167 zip files on my WebDAV server (as reported from iPhone). Syncing is fast on the mac but slow on the iPhone. I checked that I have only these two in my preferences and also that they have been synced recently.

However I see some strange behaviour in the Apache Logs auf the WebDAV server:

This is the Mac syncing - everything fine. It gets a 401 first to authenticate and afterwards seems to be doing the sync normally (note there are more similar entries in the log).

However if the iPhone is syncing, it looks like the following. There's a 401 for each request and only then the iPhone is authenticating (dka is my username here, 3rd column). Something seems to be strange with the session handling and/or authentication here (although here: there are more similar entries in the log):

Maybe this is also part of the reason why the sync from the iPhone is so slow. I guess making almost double the requests necessary is a significant performance loss (at least on mobile networks). (NB This was WiFi)

Used versions: OmniFocus 1.7.3 on the Mac, 1.5.2 on the iPhone
