Magento 2 backend so slow compared to 1

I've recently migrated from 1.9.3 to 2.3.4. In my experience upgraded versions of anything are rarely as good as the original, so I expected some pain. However M2 is proving so slow and cumbersome compared M1. Is there anything that can be done to speed up the backend?

Front end is faster and better, but the bit I use most is the backend. Takes about 15 seconds to open orders, most clicks take 7 seconds to open the next menu

 

Some other issues 

- cannot reindex from back end .

- when searching for an order number you cannot just put the  last 5 digits of the order number, you must put the whole number

- keep getting "Attention something went wrong" messages

 

.Any help appreciated thanks

Julian

Hello @overlap818 

 

By default, Magento 2 isn’t slow, however, if not set up well, the store will lag and load bit by bit. This applies not only to your storefront but you may also face Magento with slow backend.

Although Magento 1 is comparatively faster than Magento 2, but there are couple of methods you can optimise it, follow this documentation :

https://magenticians.com/magento-optimization/

 

Please follow the below steps to reindex from admin:

 

  1. Log in to the Magento Admin.
  2. Click System > Tools > Index Management.
  3. Select the checkbox next to each type of indexer to change.
  4. From the Actions list, click the indexing mode.
  5. Click Submit.

And try to read the warnings shown, as most common warnings are related with caching.

thanks I'll take a look at that link.

The index cannot actually be made to run though - you have to set up a cron job.

Reindexing is something that needs to be done regularly when you are adding products.

I understood 2 to be less resource hungry and therefore should be faster. Front end is for me but the backend is worse.

Does anyone make an extension to make M2 backend "classic" like M1?

there are several commands for M2 which includes Indexing command as well which we usually do (not with backend)

* php bin/magento indexer:reindex

thanks for reply. SSH reindex was available on 1, I just can't fathom why they would remove a fundemental - it's a bit like when Microsoft removed the start button on windows. I cannot add a product and reindex on a mobile phone now..

the above command I add is SSH command only :

php bin/magento indexer:reindex

 

you asked in question to reindex from backend (admin panel ) so I gave you example from admin.

 

Thank you

Re: Magento 2 backend so slow compared to 1

OK i've had a developer optimise the webstore and the front end is much improved, but back end operations are painfully slow. He did add an extension to reindex from the CMS, so at least one bit of 1 that was lost is back.  In addition you don't seem to be able to open another tab to carry on with another operation simultaneously.

 

It's so slow and cumbersome compared to 1, I can't find anything it does better.

Does anyone know of an extension to offer a faster more effective back end? It needs to improve speed by 10x to be workable as a business.

Move it to a much faster server. Problem solved.
