Group display takes long time to load
In 800xA 6.0.2 (with harmony), our customer group displays take 8 seconds and more to load.
Their graphic displays load fast: around 1 sec.
I attached three files:
-diag slow summary (group display)
-diag slow misc (group display)
-diag fast summaray (graphic display)
What could cause delay on group display load?
The faceplates are shown in an aspect view. Group Displays are slow because opening aspect view elements is slow. The same problem applies to any graphic where you try to embed another graphic ( eg a faceplate, trend displays, other graphics etc). The more aspect views you try to open, the slower it gets.
A possible workaround is to make a normal operator graphic and just add the faceplate elements to it directly. Its not ideal because you dont get the faceplate buttons and icons doing this.
Rob is right.
There is little or nothing to gain with a group display since it will internally call every single embedded aspect ”as an individual view”.
To gain speed, create a PG2 display where you drop the PG2 faceplate elements of the desired objects. This constitutes a single common view which removes a lot of the overhead.
