Performance issues with Graphic Elements in 800xA
I am still doing research about Performance Issues on the ABB 800xA System from one of our clients. There are performance issues when we call up Graphic Displays for the very first time. An improvement we already did is eliminating all the Aspect View Wrappers and we also made improvements with our Network.
The load time for a Graphic when it is called up for the very first time on a client is still between 5 to 10 seconds and decreases even more when we are calling up several displays. We also see that the CPU Load of the Aspect Server goes to the maximum. CPU Load should not be the bottleneck of the ABB 800xA System, so there has to be something else what causes this high CPU Load. We found out that some Graphic Elements, which are used a lot in our Graphic Displays, are generating logfiles which give a good indication where we have to look for these performance issues. In the attachment there are some examples of these Graphic Elements and the corresponding logfiles.
I think the general names of the lower modules are the problem, but I am told that the 800xA System works with GUID's instead of Module names? So the names shoudn't be an issue.
Please have a look at this attachment before answering this question.
You need to look at the "Diagnostics" tab of the graphic. Log on as an engineer, right click on the graphic and choose "Diagnostics"
The pdf you have attached is just guesses. You need to look at the actual timings, where the delays are occuring, and how how the subscriptions are being resolved.
If the graphics have ANY late binding subsciption in them ( and the log file implies that they do) then that will most likely be your main problem.
