Product Features slowing down site

I recently added several product features. After doing so, I’ve noted two problems.

The first and highly problematic, is that it now takes over a minute for a new product to be submitted. After filling out all the fields on the Add Product form and clicking Create, it takes more than 60 seconds to process. It used to take only 4 or 5 seconds.

Not only does this slow us down, but it occasionally times out and the product isn’t created completely (ie. some of the database entries aren’t created)

The other, is that when going to product pages on the storefront it takes about 7 or 8 seconds for the features tab to load.

I’m having the same problem.

… might be the server speed as well.

Yep, I’m experiencing problems in the admin side with products, listing them even in 10’s I cannot seem to move to page 2 of the list to begin changing descriptions.

Have happened to notice that on the storefront if there is more than one page for products, the customer cannot select page 2/3/4 etc, just shows the first page and thats it?
