I'm using the following org agenda custom command, with a relatively small
org-mode text file, and agenda creation is taking around 3-4 seconds, it
becomes unbearably worse if I modify stuck-projects to also use properties
searches)

*Is there anything I can change to speed up the commands execution; or
developer changes to org-mode?*


(setq org-agenda-custom-commands
      '(("h" "Next Action"
         (
          (agenda ""
                  ((org-agenda-ndays 1)
                   (org-agenda-time-grid '())
                   (org-deadline-warning-days 5)
                   (org-agenda-sorting-strategy '(time-up priority-down))
                   (org-agenda-skip-deadline-if-done t)
                   (org-agenda-overriding-header "Today's Agenda: ")
                   ))
          ;;;;;;; SLOW COMMAND #1
          (tags
"@HOME-habit-__IGNORE-SCHEDULED>\"<2000-01-01>\"/TODO|BLOCKED|SUBMIT"

                ((org-agenda-sorting-strategy '(priority-down))
                 (org-agenda-overriding-header "Unscheduled Todo (@Home): ")
                 ))

          (org-agenda-list-stuck-projects)    ; SLOW IF I USE PROPERTIES
LIKE ABOVE

          ;;;;;;; SLOW COMMAND #2
          (tags
"-@HOME-habit-@WORK-__IGNORE-SCHEDULED>\"<2000-01-01>\"/TODO|BLOCKED|SUBMIT"
                 (
                  (org-agenda-sorting-strategy '(priority-down tag-down))
                  (org-agenda-overriding-header "Unscheduled Todo (Other
Contexts): ")
                  ))
          (tags "+habit+@HOME-__IGNORE/TODO"
                 (
                  (org-agenda-sorting-strategy '(priority-down tag-down))
                  (org-agenda-overriding-header "Habits (@Home): ")
                  ))
          ))

The main performance degradation comes from  -SCHEDULED>\"<2000-01-01>\"

I understand there's a way to removed scheduled items from TODO agenda
generations, but this doesn't apply to TAGS agenda generations. So in order
to accomplish this in tags, I've added -SCHEDULED>\"<2000-01-01>\" meaning,
'does not have a SCHEDULED property'

Overall, isn't there any way to speed up property queries?
If the property query is generating some kind of index, is there a way to
keep this indexed cached for the subsequent property query in this overall
agenda page generation?

Cheers,
Jason

P.S. This being my first post on the mailing list, org-mode is absolutely
amazing & invaluable!

As you suggest, any searches for properties other than TODO, LEVEL,
and CATEGORY can be quite slow.

Have you considered using a todo search and then using secondary
filtering to limit by tag. This would enable you to use either of the
following variables:

- org-agenda-todo-ignore-with-date
- org-agenda-todo-ignore-scheduled

Best,
Matt

Thank you Matthew, this improved the performance to an acceptable ~half
second

I still wonder if multiple property searches could be optimized somehow, but
for my purposes I'm satisfied =)

For example, you can't use agenda filter commands with
org-stuck-project-list, thus you'd have to resort to a slow property search.
Some people might want to search for high priority stuck projects. (I solved
this by introducing different 'priority' todo states)

Hi Jason,

property searches are really un-optimized in Org.  Tag searches are  
faster, but
also not well optimized.

I do have ideas how to improve the situation with some cacheing.
However, this is a case where the fact that Org-mode is using
plain text files is biting you.  It is very hard,
between two searched (the first one creating the cache,  the second
one using it), to be sure that the text base has not been modified
by hand.

I could probably create a cache and make the user responsible to
update it, but I have not made this step.
