Sometimes it’s a bit hard to see the little improvements we make to the product – so you might not have noticed the recently enhanced dashboard performance.
The Samanage dashboard has 80+ widgets that can be easily organized to meet your instant reporting needs. Each widget is basically a query that goes to the DB, accumulates data, prepares it in a graphic format and displays it on a page. Not too long ago, the dashboard was created by constructing the different widgets, running the queries sequentially, processing the results and displaying the dashboard page. But this meant that many of our users that have dashboards with dozens of widgets that took too long to build and display.
With the recent performance enhancement, the widgets are all built simultaneously. The dashboard page now loads very quickly, initiates the query generation process, and starts displaying widgets graphs as soon as the data is returned from the server. The result is a much faster dashboard and a snappier app, just the way we like it!
Please give us your feedback and let us know of any ideas.
