Synchronizing DEVONthink To Go is typically slower than synching DEVONthink for Mac due to the different technologies used for the database as well as the overall restrictions of iOS compared to macOS.
Thanks Eric, I meant DTTG on the iPhone using the NAS and WebDav vs using Bonjour.
Why was NAS (a Synology disk) so much faster than Bonjour? And apparently I can’t sync both my iPhone and my iPad at the “same” time via Bonjour, but I could via the NAS/WebDav.
I recall somewhere Jim saying something about Bonjour being “one at a time”?
That is correct. As this time, only one Bonjour client can connect and sync at a time. Devices will queue up and sync when it’s their turn. However, in general use this doesn’t often cause any appreciable issues.
Tx Jim! - understood. Side question: what are some possible reasons a couple of databases would not sync? And one of them is telling me thousands of “pending” files - I have a suspicion we’ve been there before, so forgive me
And, Bonjour was not slow, really, my databases are just massive. But I learned one thing. Turn on donwnload “always” at “root” level for all dbs, because deciding to turn it on later for some DBs where it wasn’t is massively slow.
