My LabCollector or Add-on is very slow. Why and how to fix it?

It turns out that by default Windows 7 hosts file at C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts has this line commented out:

# 127.0.0.1 localhost

to

127.0.0.1 localhost

# ::1 localhost

Simply uncommenting this line changes the localhost performance back to what it was supposed to be, instead of that annoying 3-5 second wait on every page load.

Remember that you need to run your text editor with administrator rights to edit the hosts file.

Also make sure to comment the ::1 IPV6 option.

If still not enough, then use 127.0.0.1 as the database HOST in config.php (instead of localhost) under \AgileBio\LabCollector\www\lab.
