Blazing fast dashboard loading is finally here 🙂
Enable performance boost by installing the LazyLoading plugin.
How does it work?
Lazy Loading recognizes which widgets are “Above The Fold” (I.E. currently visible on the screen), and then prevent all the non-visible widgets from sending out their queries to the cube until they become visible (usually by scrolling down the page).
The plugin significantly reduces the time it takes for the dashboard to finish up its initial loading and be ready for the user to start using it. As a result, the user will have a much smoother experience when navigating between dashboards.
Another result is that fewer queries are sent to the cube which leads to better performance on the server side as well.
The performance boost is even more impressive when discussing mobile browsing as it turns the mobile experience to be blazing fast.
This plugin also takes into account usage of the Tabber and Accordion widgets and applies on their hidden widgets as well (I.E. widgets on in-active tabs won’t send their queries until the user navigates to them).
See it in Action!
