There is indeed a performance issue under certain loads on the Windows platform in 2018.2 and 2019.1 servers.  We want to address the root cause before releasing these builds.  If you have any further questions, send an email to support@perforce.com.

Okay, this may explain some of our issues since moving to 2019.1  

We've had performance issues syncing that required restarting clients and also had processes back up because someone created a workspace.

Are the problems just with Windows? They don't happen to involved submits to an edge server, do they? I have a case open WRT this on Linux,. so thought I'd ask.

The problem is only on Windows.  And it is experienced with parallel syncing. We are testing fixes.

I see 2019.1 has been re-released.   How should I go about updating to the newer version?

The normal upgrade applies.  See "Upgrading a Helix Server"
https://community.pe.../s/article/2467


Here's how to upgrade the Helix server assuming you are on Windows past 2013.3:

1. Take a checkpoint of your system during off-hours


From a "Run as administrator" command prompt, run

cd <Perforce Server root seen in P4V, Help, System Info>
p4d.exe -r . -J <pathto>\journal -jc


or alternatively run

p4 admin checkpoint


2. Gather sanity check information

Note the last changelist numbers and the date and time.
Also run P4V, Help, System Info and look at your current server version.


3. During downtime, stop the Perforce service

Go to Administrative Tools, Services, Perforce


4. Replace your current p4d.exe and p4s.exe with a new p4d.exe and new p4s.exe


Rename your current p4d.exe and p4s.exe
Download the new p4d.exe
Make a copy of p4d.exe and name it p4s.exe.
Replace your current p4d.exe and p4s.exe.

You can choose the version you would like to upgrade to.  For example, you can download Perforce 2019.1 at

ftp://ftp.perforce.com/perforce/r19.1/bin.ntx64/p4d.exe


5.  Run the upgrade

p4d.exe -r . -xu


6. Start Perforce

7. Run sanity checks.

Look at View, Submitted Changelists.  Note the last changelist numbers and the date and time.

Also run P4V, Help, System Info and look at the new "Server version"

See  Upgrading a Helix Server.


The depot files (versioned files) will not change.  Because the IP address has not changed, the license will still work.
