I have problems with the OMERO installation we assembled at our institute for testing purposes. OMERO.server works, OMERO.web works, it is possible to upload images from OMERO.insight, to visualize them, to download them, but there is still a big problem mentioned by the “beta-testers”: the time to upload images to the server is very long compared to the actual server we use (a server based on windows server, basic, for data storage, not really fine-tuned for imaging). Also, when trying to download images from the OMERO server to a PC, i experienced failures: for example, the downloading of a czi image of about 90 Mb fails at about 72 Mbs, and trying to download a metamorph image (nd + tif files) fails with a 504 error.
So, what are the minimal recommandations for an OMERO server to work properly?
I’m assume it depends of the purpose of the server and of the number of users, but i’m pretty sure there is a problem: we have currently at least between 5-10 persons (maybe less) who are using it for testing, and certainly not at the same time…
On my side, i’ll try to acquire some informations on the infrastructure data for both servers (the omero testing server and the current one based on Windows). If you have an idea of the critical values i should examine in priority, feel free to tell me.
Thanks by advance, Marc.
