I used the community version to play with and see if it might supplant Evernote which I am currently using for document management. Evernote is not great for this, but it works and has proven reliable. I started by moving 12,000 documents into the system. As pre-configured it might take another century to index, so I began the dirty task of figuring out what they did wrong. Logicaldoc has more bugs than an anthill. The scheduler is simply atrocious. It does not work correctly, lists wrong scheduled times, and the default times are foolish. You can fix this trial and error though. The program only shows 100 results typically and then summerizes them as 100 even though it might have 5000 entries in a specific que. You can fix this by altering the Display parameter, but it resets when you leave the screen. Trying to restore default values does not active the save button - you must restore, then modify, then manually restore the default to get the save button to appear. The permissions on the linux install are not set up correctly, you have to manually locate and set them to enable execution. This is a java program. Java is a very poor platform for complex applications. It's slow, not really platform independent, and full of bugs - that's why there are updates all the time. If I owned a businesses I would not go near this software, its just too sloppy at the interface level, and that usually means the internals are also sloppy, but I cant confirm this yet. Finally, the thinking of the developers/owners is idiotic. Support forums are locked up like fort knox. What are they trying to protect? You need complex passwords, administration approval, etc just to post a question. People who think like this don't value the system of open source, or understand it. As for server loading under extreme conditions, its pretty light - because it does not perform. They have a limit on CPU time of 75% in a setting. I pushed this to 100% and with thousands of documents waiting for attention I got the system to consume about 30% of the resources available to it - (Java strikes again). The community version is a eunich version. It cannot do drag and drop, document preview, and probably more. Since the software looked promising I tried to buy a copy of the "business version". I was sent to "get a quote". Oh well, you know what that means. This program suffers from lack of real-time programming knowledge and technique (which no one who knew about would use java for anyway), and I fear if you had a few users you could bring the system to its knees quite quickly. For one user, keeping track of their documents it's OK, but not great. No doubt the community needs a good open source DMS and this product has great potential, but I doubt it will get there before someone challenges them with a product that is more polished, actually works, and has easy access to support.
Works very good with every system and working speed is much better thne costly DMS. TheFASsolutions.
Works and fast.
Very easy to use logicaldoc
Good and useful software
