The online MLS service at www.mlsvallarta.com has never been very fast, and recently its been even slower. One of our developers has been working on it and this involved downloading large portions, hence slowing it down for everyone. We’ve asked him to stop that for now. The database program we use is not the best for online use. We have to go through a 3rd party program, which means each request we make of the database has to go a rather roundabout way, slowing down the process. We are working on eliminating the “middle program” by translating the entire database to another database format (MySQL), which is built for this type of usage. This will dramatically speed up the database. We are beginning on this project in January and we’ll keep you posted on our progress.
