Loading sections into current section causes performance issue

In IE 11 as well as Chrome,loading some sections into the current section, especially grids and lists which display huge amounts of data, huge performance issue is observed. User have to wait for quite some time before the data being loaded.

Can you suggest me how can I achieve performance tuning in this particular scenerio.

Hi SeeraNavya,

It is expected that the huge content in a single page or section will have a performance impact at runtime. However, we can improve the same by adding some design changes to existing section. Below are the different options available Out of the Box to improve the performance.

1) Try defer load the contents based on the priority. (Even though, the page has the huge content end user may not be able to use everything at time so load the content when ever user requested for it. ) In Pega, Defer load contents option available at dynamic layout.

2) As your query says that you are using grids, you can configure pagination for grids which will improve performance. (You can use Progressive pagination for better user experience or any other pagination format)

When you apply pagination try using sorting and filtering configuration on grids which will give better usability to reach the most recent item in the grid.

3) As your query says more about including section, you can make use of defer load content option the section include configuration. This will defer load the contents. Hence, user may not need to wait to load such big section to load.

Hope this helps, Please feel free to reply if you have any more details.

Thank you,

We are calling multiple services on load of a section.Due to huge data, few layouts taking more time to load data. As per requirement, we can't call service on demand also. Could any of you have an idea on the ajax implementation for sections(on scrolling of section the services need to be called for loading data).
