Performance is an area we are always investing in here at Samanage, so that we can make the app faster and snappier for our users. We’re constantly making performance enhancements and improving the overall response time of the system.
Here is an overview of a few of the performance enhancements we’ve introduced around Q3:
- Concurrent widget loading on the dashboard: With the new update, all dashboard widgets are constructed and displayed at the same time. Now all widgets are processed simultaneously and will show results as soon as they load. The Dashboard will also load much quicker – as opposed to before when you had to wait for a server request to be sent, processed, all the widgets to be processed, and then only displayed in your browser.
- Capacity: We’ve doubled our database cluster capacity during Q3, and also doubled the number of frontend servers. The app is now much faster thanks to the upgrade.
- CSS images: We’ve embedded many of the images we load into the CSS files to reduce the number of static assets calls. This means that when the page and CSS files load, the images are already available, and the browser does not have to make additional calls to retrieve the images from the server.
- Avatar resizing: User profile images will now be resized when they are uploaded. This will be done so that the reduced size version will be the one stored.
