JDownloader is slow

This is a troubleshooting guide for whenever your JDownloader is slow.
This article is not about slow download speed! Read this article if you are dealing with slow download speeds.

  1. Check if the issue is in any way related to your downloadlist/linkgrabber list or settings
    a. Close JD and create a backup of all of your settings and downloadlist.
    b. Rename/delete your current config folder.
    c. Start JD and check if it runs faster.
    If there is no difference at all, jump to the last point of this guide else just rollback your config and continue with the next steps to cleanup your downloadlist/linkgrabber list.
  2. Huge download list or linkgrabber list?
    If your downloadlist contains a significant amount of items you may want to delete some items.
  3. Huge linkgrabber list due to forgotten deselected or filtered elements?
    Switch to the linkgrabber tab and check the right side.
    If you see unchecked checkboxes, check them to be able to see see- and manually delete the hidden items.
    You may also just delete all items at once by clicking on the yellow arrow in the bottom toolbar:

    If you've used custom LinkGrabber filters your linkgrabber may also contain a lot of such filtered items which you can see in the bottom toolbar:
  4. If none of the above has helped and/or for some reason you permanently need to keep a lot of items in your LinkGrabber/Downloadlist, check your .vmoptions file and increase the max. memory value.
