- retry with the current version 2.0.9
- share your file for a profiler analysis
- as said by Itai (who implemented it) try enabling subsampling in PDFRenderer (read the javadoc first). Compare the results and decide whether the quality is OK for you. - set the energy settings of your computer to maximum or at least to "balanced", not to "energy save"
- don't know if adding GPU will help;
- try also the -Dorg.apache.pdfbox.rendering.UsePureJavaCMYKConversion=true option

The speed is not related to the size but to the complexity. 32 seconds may sound disappointing but it's not the worst I've ever seen. "Nice illustrations" with nested patterns or large shadings may be slow.

Hi, everyone,

I am using PDFBox 2.0.8 and java 8 running in tomcat 8 for production to convert pdf into 
image for display. it works very well for pdf file size less than 5 M, it takes about 3800 
milliseconds. however, it slows down very much when the file size is increased to 50 M. it 
takes about 70,000 milliseconds, after setting system property of sun.java2d.cmm", 
"sun.java2d.cmm.kcms.KcmsServiceProvider", it does increase the performance to 32550 
milliseconds, which almost double the speed. but for 32 seconds to load a web page still too 
slow. Is there any other way to speed up the performance? would adding a GPU into the server 
help the performance? or any other software or hardware solution could help on the processing 
speed? My current server come with 32 G RAM, and the server never used more than half of it.
