project with packed library is loading slower

Hi,

 

I've replaced few labview libraries with packed libraries and now project is loading considerably slower. Is this behaviour expected? I am worried that when my project will grow bigger it will took a lot of time to load.

Hi Andrej,

 

I did not found information about loading time of packed libraries.

I checked these pages:

- Tutorial: http://zone.ni.com/devzone/cda/pub/p/id/1261

- PPT: https://decibel.ni.com/content/docs/DOC-14114

- LabVIEW Help: http://zone.ni.com/reference/en-XX/help/371361G-01/lvconcepts/packed_libraries/

 

I think it should be loaded faster or in the same time, because it is pre-built package. But this is my opinion.

 

How big is you project?

I suggest you to split up your lvlibp into smaller packages. If you have host-pc VIs and remote device VIs (like cRIO Real-Time) you should put the into separete packed libraries.

 

The packed libraries have a lot of advantages and benefits in big project, so you shouldn't be worried about difficulties. But it is again my opinion, I have never tested it in big projects.

Hi,

 

my project is not huge (~400 VIs).

I was hoping too that loading would be faster, but it is completely opposite in my case. And even switching between front panel and block diagram take 1-2 sec. But if I replace packed library with normal library, everything works as smooth.

Hi Andrej,

 

Could you send us the project? I can do some testing on it.

If you want to send it, please do not attach it on the forum but send it to techsupport@ni.com and put this to the subject:  (Reference#1051612)
