RE: What uses less resources on NetSuite? Suitescripts or Workflows?

Which customization uses the least resources on NetSuite’s performance? Suitescripts or Workflows? We have a set number of Workflows for our Sales Order Records and are wondering if converting them to Suitescripts would make the creation and  view processes of the Sales Orders faster.

I definitely do not know the answer to this, but I would bet that it heavily depends on what a workflow is doing versus a script.

If they were one for one doing the same exact thing, my guess is that the difference would be negligible. Just my 2 cents.

In the past we had NetSuite look at our performance levels and they came back recommending to switch some of the Workflows running on transactions to be switched to a Script and they provided data on how many secs it would save for each record. NetSuite performs slow by Nature but you can also try to look at some of the Performance within your NetSuite instance.

There is a bundle that allows you to see this in NetSuite and you can decide upon that data. Performance Logs and SuiteScript Analysis will provide all that detailed information. Although as Eric mentioned, I would not worry too much, it is a wide spread issue that everyone faces and most efforts don’t make a whole lot of difference.
