Let me try to explain a problem. I am testing exactly the same workbench on the to computers. One has installed FME 2012 without SP, another has the same but with SP4. Tested workbenches behaviour are different. First, one without SP4 process data min. 10x faster. Other thing is difference in information about processing in log window.

For example, for FME 2012 without SP:

Reading table/feature class 'name1' 
Reading table/feature class 'name2' 
Processed CANDIDATE 7070 
Reading table/feature class 'name33' 
Processed CANDIDATE 19460 
Processed CANDIDATE 27470

And for FME 2012 SP4 at the same part of log:

Sorting 566 features...
Calculating inside points...
Determining uppermost containment...
Constructing donuts from 566 features...

And that takes long time. Input data are in File geodatabase API format. Any clues what should I do? Why constructing donuts and holes? I was quite satisfied with the way and processing time before. Thank you.

Can you provide sample data and .FMW to repro the issue? Have you contacted Safe? – blah238 Dec 19 '12 at 9:00
I havn't contact them yet. I thought first to ask here. Maybe someone had the same experiance. – Z77 Dec 19 '12 at 9:06
[] would be best solution - they are quick to response and make sure you send them your workspace - They even have a page now where you can upload your workspace. – Mapperz Dec 19 '12 at 14:34
while waiting on Safe support you could try removing and re-adding the transformer in your SP4 workbench - perhaps there is a new version of the transformer in this SP and the old version has compatibility issues. – tomfumb Dec 19 '12 at 17:32
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about an issue with an old version of the software and the person should have had a response by Safe Software since it was asked. – Fezter Oct 8 '13 at 6:29
