Slow Magento 2 backend? Simple ways to increase admin performance

The are lots of complains in the web about slow Magento 2 backend. The loading time of a Magento 2 admin panel pages usually takes from a dozen of seconds to minutes. This is a really annoying when you need to manage a bunch of products, customers, orders or any other store information.

In this article, we will point you a few easy ways that might be of help, when you need to improve the performance of your Magento admin panel.

Clean Up Magento 2 Catalog

Generally there is no any limit on the number of catalog-related data Magento 2 can handle. However, piling it with a a number of unnecessary or outdated data in the store is very good idea. Even if they are not displayed on the front-end, Magento still processes them and it may cause Admin Panel to slow down.

Consider finding some unused products, categories, images or attributes that only occupy space on your server and remove them. A lean catalog will be faster in reading and searching operations. Repeat this activity every few months in order to keep the store fast.

If you do not want to spend too much time on trying to find outdated info manually, you can run free audit -


Tune Up Reindexing Operations

If you have reindex setting is ‘Update on Save’, whenever you update a product, the Magento backend starts to reindex. But not only 1 product will be indexed, the whole catalog. If you have a lot of products, it will take some time to complete and may cause unnecessary delays.

Instead, you can turn on automated reindex updates on schedule which is more performance-friendly or schedule reindexing via shell.

Increase Memory Limit for Slow Magento 2 Backend

Lack of free memory is a common issue for multiple Magento 2 installations. If you do not know how to do it yourself, ask your hosting company to assist you with this task and the best memory setting to configure.
