Hey there lately we have following problem.

Our shop has about 2000 products with 5-6 images each. The max image size is about 100kb for the full version (800x800px)

Still, since about 1 week the image/cache/catalog/ folder is totally laggy. I even can't open in propably in FTP and even the file manager in my hosters panel times out.

Also the images on the site seem to open slower.

Is this a problem with retrieving the folder list due to size or something?

Thanks a lot

Well, 2000 x 6 equals 12'000 cached Images. and if you use different
Image Sizes, depending on the Page, they apprear, this amount will
even grow. Then, depending on the Server you use, you could run into
a timing problem, expecially, if you have all those images placed in one
single Subdirectory, and not placed into different Subs, sorted by i.E. Products.

Check your image/cache/catalog/ Subdirectory, by use of the FTP Client, and
count, how many cached images in total exist. And if you cannot open the Sub by FTP,
just DELETE the entire CACHE/CATALOG/ Subdirectory, to make the Shop work again,
but then, look around for a decent Hoster first.
