Render/Performance issue

Hi All,

I am new to ArcGIS Pro (I have been using ArcGIS desktop for quite long time now).

I am trying to compose the maps using ArcGIS Pro (Create Layout). But somehow the layer rendering/labeling seems to be slow compared to ArcGIS desktop (When I use the same data).

 

Can anyone please tell me what could be the reason? Is there any rendering/display settings to be tweaked?

Hi @MatthewMinick First run through Troubleshooting Performance Issues in ArcGIS Pro to ensure that the machine and graphics card meet the ArcGIS Pro requirements which are different than ArcMap.  You will also find display and rendering settings in that document that you can work with.  

Work through those steps first and follow up to let us know if you're still seeing performance differences.  

Are you using the Standard labeling engine in both ArcMap and Pro?  Or Maplex in both ArcMap and Pro? (I ask because Maplex is an option in ArcMap, but is the default in Pro).

Thanks for your reply,

I ran the tool. I have attached the results. Please check.

I am guessing it may be because there is no dedicated video card in my system.

I am using Maplex label engine.

Yeah - having a dedicated card might help.  Did you work with any of the display options:

or anything from the labeling section

Did any of those help?

Matthew,

I have a couple of questions before I give an answer. Are you drawing in images from a server? Are the images on your machine? What kind of images are you processing? Are you processing images for analysis or are you just displaying the imagery is a layer?

There are definitely some tweaks you can make in ArcGIS pro to make processing faster. If you are just displaying the images as a base map and you're not doing any analysis you can definitely speed up the processing by ensuring that you are building pyramids for your images. You can find the settings for building pyramids under the analysis tab and scrolling down to the raster storage selection. Make sure that the build pyramids box is checked, set the resampling technique is sat to bilinear. Also, if you're using a quad core machine then you can set processor type in the same environments. Down below the raster storage section you'll see a section that says processor type. If you hover over the space to the left of the processor type command and click on the information tab you can assign different processors to carry on the calculations. If you have multiple GPU's you can also assign more than one GPU to do the processing. This will vastly increase the speed with which the rasters are rendered. There are other things that you can do and if you give some more specifics I can make suggestions.

Hi,

I am rendering shapefiles (Points, Polygons).

I am not rendering any image as of now, except the default basemap which shows the roads, lakes/rivers etc.

Just adding locally-stored shapefiles to a map in Pro is not a geoprocessing task, and should not under-perform ArcMap. With that in mind, ArcGIS Pro performance issues are not an isolated anomaly: Why does ArcGIS Pro have to be so slow??? Unfortunately the onus to actually prove this is on you, which you can do with https://support.esri.com/en/technical-article/000013215 and https://www.esri.com/arcgis-blog/products/announcements/announcements/how-to-use-arcgis-pro-perftool....

Hi,

I guess the issue was with the labeling (Because I have 10 or more layers labeled together) so I tweaked the Inbound and Outbound limits in the Labeling properties. It is better now, Not very fast, but better.

I also changed the display setting as suggested by @KoryKramer

@MatthewMinick I'm glad to hear that it is better, but if you are comparing to ArcMap and noting that draw time in Pro is slower, we would want to get this example to the team to investigate.

We have your 'can you run it' specs from the earlier comment.  In order to understand if the performance may be impacted by the machine's limited dedicated video RAM, would you be able to share a map package?  If your map was originally created in ArcMap and you imported it into ArcGIS Pro, could you share the mpk from ArcMap? 

If it was created in Pro, would you be able to create a handful of bookmarks at different scales that demonstrate different labeling densities, record the times you're seeing for labels to draw for each respective bookmark, and send us those stats along with the mpkx?  You can email me at kkramer@esri.com.

Thanks
