      Leyendo los foros de HM consegui esta info, de mano de uno de los de soporte. La pego tal cual esta ahi:



      I just thought it would be helpful to post this list. The HEM FAQ has most of this information, but it's quite cluttered to find it in so many FAQs.

      Please post here, if you can think of other tips that will help increase the performance of HEM, HM Import, Table Scanner, HUD and postgreSQL. Specifically for those that have a HUGE database. And maybe some experts/admins can give some insight, which on these list will cause the greatest performance improvements and which will be hardly noticable. And HEM users can discuss about their experiences using these tips here.

      Read this first: Ten (!) tips already posted in the Official HEM FAQ to improve performance.
      I've re-used three out of those ten tips in the list below:


      Top 10 tips:

      Upgrade your HARDWARE*:
      1 to 3

      -1 Get a fast harddisk! (= more important than having a QuadCore over a DualCore processor!)
      ---x Preferably two+ SSD harddisks in a RAID-0 array. (fastest)
      ---x Or just one SSD just for your database and Windows (Intel X25-M G2 Postville)
      ---x Or two new 7200 RPM harddisks in RAID-0
      ---x Or just a really fast SCSI/SAS 10k RPM / 15k RPM harddisk (requires an expensive SAS/SCSI controller) or a VelociRaptor
      ---x A new 7200 RPM IDE/SATA harddisk (slowest)
      The SSD not only wins on Sequential Read/Write speeds (of big files), they win the most with access time, 4K Read/Write speeds (small files) and just "overall" I/O operations per second.
      A Western Digital VelociRaptor used to be easily twice as fast as the best 7200 RPM harddisk. However it currently only is about 10% faster than the latest Seagate Barracudas, Hitachi Deskstars, Western Digital Caviar Blacks and Samsung Spinpoints F1/F3. And the VelociRaptor does not justify its price difference anymore. So for the best price/performance, a new high-end 7200 RPM harddisk is your best choice).... Note: a brand new $60 high-end 2009 model 7200 RPM harddisk will be twice as fast as your 3-4+ yrs old 7200 RPM harddisk!... get a SSD if you can afford it.
      LAPTOP: get one with a SSD. ALL 7200 RPM laptop harddisks are slow (favoring being energy efficient over performance, make sure the Power Options are set to HIGH PERFORMANCE).

      -2 Get lots of RAM (at least 2+ GB RAM recommended if you have a 10+ GB database) (note: when using more than 3 GB RAM, use a 64-bit version of Windows)
      -3 PostgreSQL love multible CPUs, so the more CPUs the better. (Intel i5 / i7 or AMD Phenom) Also "Holdem Manager will be adding improvements in 1.10 that will take advantage of quad core/64 bit versions."

      Update your SOFTWARE:

      -4 Always use the latest version of Holdem Manager, use the most current version of PostgreSQL Currently that's 8.4. How to install HEM + PostgreSQL 8.4.
      Update your Windows (use Microsoft Update, and make sure you have the latest Service Pack (SP2 for Vista, SP3 for XP)) and update all system drivers (including your mainboard and videocard driver!).

      -5 Remove the WinnerName, WinnerCards and WinnerWon from the Hands View Column Selector

      -6 Defrag your non-SSD harddisk, using Defraggler by Piriform. Or you can use Disk Defrag by Auslogics or Power Defragmenter (all FREE software and better than the Windows included Defrag)
      It is recommended to stop postgreSQL from running before you use defrag! (To stop and start the service: Start > All Programs > PostgreSQL > Stop Service / Start Service)

      PostgreSQL:

      -7 Edit your PosgreSQL.conf file in the SQL 8.x/data folder.
      Do not use the Tuning Wizard. On some systems it will make changes to the postgresql.conf it shouldn't, resulting in being unable to connect to the database!
      If you experience this problem--> simply go to the 8.4/data folder, and delete postgresql.conf, and rename the backup postgresql.conf.2009(data xxxxxxxx) back to "postgresql.conf" and reboot.
      Recommended changes:
      shared_buffers = MB (set this to 20% of your system memory, but not more than 1000 MB.... round it off to 128 MB, 256 MB, 512 MB or 768 MB)
      effective_cache_size = MB (set this to 2x the size of the shared_buffers)

      Decrease the SIZE of your database:

      -8 How to optimize the database size in 3 steps: -1 Vacuum, -2 Reindex, -3 dump/restore
      --8.1 VACUUM: VACUUM Analyse your database regularly (How to do a manual VACUUM)
      --8.2 REINDEX (see 8.1 for instructions, but choose Reindex instead of Vacuum in pgAdmin)
      --8.3 Dump/restore (for advanced users) Step by step how to dump/restore the database

      -9 Purge hand histories (It will free up disk space without losing stats, but you lose the option to see the HH or view the hand in the replayer)

      -10 How to make PostgreSQL stop making those big log files (I had 8 GB of logfiles before I realized you're allowed to delete the content of the data/pg_log directory!)

      -11
      --11.1 A near-empty harddisk is faster than a near-full harddisk, so delete your crap! CrapCleaner by Piriform and Windows Disk Cleanup can help.
      --11.2 Turn off indexing and turn off "compress this drive to save disk space" in your harddisk properties.
      --11.3 Optimize Windows for "best performance" (in Control Panel/System/Advanced/Performance/Setting/Visual Effects).
      --11.4 Advanced users only: save space by turning off System Restore (System/System Protection) and moving (or make it smaller if you have enough RAM) your Virtual Memory system page file (System/Advanced/Performance/Setting/Advanced).

      Muy bueno!! si alguien sabe traducirlo exactamente al español si puede que lo haga xD .

      yo me compre hace unas semanas:

      AMD Phenom II x4 Quad Core 2.8Ghz AM3 box

      Gygabite GA-MA785GT-UDH3

      G.Skill Extreme PC3-12800 DDR3 4GB 2X2GB

      Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1TB sata 2 32MB maestro

      Noctua NH-UB9 SE2

      OCZ Fatal1ty 550W modular

      Creeis que va bien con el HM? es que a veces importa rapidisimo a unas 150hands/s pero otras va a 40 no sé porque....


      Si pones los discos en raid es mejor?...porque se supone que si usas uno solo deberia ir igual no?

      Si alguien puede traducir del punto 5 en adelante perfecto, ya que el traductor ayuda pero no 100% :P

      Yo tengo 2ssd Intel X25-M G2 Postville en raid0 y os puedo asegurar que vuela, es impresionante.
      Luego con un ordenata un poco potente y más de 3Gb instalar windows7.

      El tuenup utilities obligado tenerlo para mejor rendimiento y el diskeeper para conservar mejor tu ssd.

      Y para conservar bien tu windows7:
      te haces esto en un bat para borrar temporales:
      cd C:\users\%username%\AppData\Local
      rmdir /s /Q Temp

      instalas ccleaner limpieza ordenador.
      antivirus avast + firewall comodo (no me gustan las suites y kaspersky+comodo da problemas para mi comodo el mejor firewall)
      Antispyware: spywareblaster+spybot+malwarebytes y el mrt (malware removable tool de microsoft se te instala en los updates le haces acceso directo a mrt.exe)

      instalas peerblock(te protege de ips intrusas) y keepass para llevar tus passwords.
      Y el sandboxie que crea un entorno virtual para proteger tu ordenador.
