I can't post links due to my karma, but a quick search in Google about this topic will guide you to several information. I'd like to know what do you think are: - the best practices to have a faster OpenERP. - the main improvements to be made in OpenERP to make it fast.

Importing just 32735 products with most optimal fields data, with version 7.0, Its taking too much time, really bad so bad.

Just think if its on cloud & customers started to import data, really OpenERP is hell in performance.

It does not have default any system to monitor each database & its size, even multi-access serialization issues, in background cursor monitoring & related no information.

WIth gunicorn multi-workers, many issues on removing db & locks.

IMHO, the first area you should explore in order to improve OpenERP performance is PostgreSQL. There is quite a lot of material on that on the internet.

After that, take a look at the server configuration, that also helps.

Those are some pointers on how to start working on OpenERP performance

I have heard from several sources that PostgreSQL 9.2 helps OpenERP performance a lot compared to PostgreSQL 9.1.

The time taken to install all modules and run tests was almost cut in half.

Yeah, thanks for your reply. I'm looking for something more specific to OpenERP but definitely 9.2 brings a performance boost.

Just updating PostgreSQL 9.1 only is enough !!!.
