As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only. Moving forward, myibi is our community platform to learn, share, and collaborate. We have the same Focal Point forum categories in myibi, so you can continue to have all new conversations there.

Is anyone seeing 9+ second load times for dashboards. We have a case open with IBI and can't seem to get a resolution.
The data is in a SQL server 2016, data is highly optimized or very small in nature, however executives are seeing these long load times. This is not the page object load times, but actually starting the application itself on portal load.

Did you check the Session Viewer? That will tell you where the time is being taken. There are couple of things might causing this. 1) If you have more KPI's to load on the page, chrome has limitation of 6 request to run at a time. That might be cause of this too. 2) How long your queries are running in database? 3) Once you get the data, how long the fex is taking?
If you get answer for those then you will have your answers.
The portal itself takes some time to load, in the later versions of WebFOCU Sthis is getting better / faster.
Check with developertools in your browser (F12) the network statistics to see what is taking a lot of time. Also the sessionviewer in the WebFOCUS client helps to see which calls are taking a long time.
I've created a dashboard that has nothing but URL's (no fex fired off at load time) and it still takes around 10 seconds to load. Now that we won't be able to use View Builder, we don't have many other options than the slow dashboard.

Open Admin Console, Diagnostics and Look at the Session Monitor. It'll highlight any warnings and/or errors. Is this an application that was just developed or upgraded? You can also check the Reporting Server logs to see how the server is performing. Do you have this problem with a specific dashboard or is it every report and chart that behaves this way?

Portal initial load slowness is happening everywhere. Already we opened a case with ibi but no luck. One of the options we are trying is to move the WebFocus repository from cloud to local and that reduce the initial Portal load from 8seconds to 6seconds.
I just wish that IBI would put the old dashboards back in the product. In our environment and the way we use them, their performance is far superior to the portal. IBI finally got it stable and working then they drop it for no good reason. Don't want to further enhance it? I have no problem with that, but don't just eliminate it.
