Support Team Process for Investigating Latency Issues
Our Support Team will reach out with the following if there is a Latency issue reported. This will allow us to understand if there is an issue with the web browser in use.
clear cache, cookies, history
Is this happening to all users or just to you?
Is this wide-spread among different regions?
If you are in a remote office - distanced geographically far from your company's AWS region?
Please provide us with the screenshot of Cloud Ping Latency results from the affected regions. - http://www.cloudping.info/
Chrome CPU - This can be found in the Task Manager of the Server. Open the Task Manager and look at the CPU "Processes" tab, and sort by application. Find the Google Chrome (or relevant browser) and note how much CPU % it is utilizing. There may be a large spike in CPU/Memory utilization when there is a problem.
If possible, collect a network log that covers some of the poor performance.
Gather Network Logs
A Network Log, or HAR file, contains a record of all of the communication that occurred between the user's browser and our servers for a specific time period.
After opening chrome DevTools (F12) and navigating to the Network tab, Chrome starts recording all network activity related to Veslink. You will see new commands appear as you navigate throughout the site, open forms and lists, etc. If you perform an action that is especially slow, or reveals an error, while this tool is open, Chrome records many details that can be useful for our team to investigate.
After Chrome has captured this information, you can export it to a file and send it to developers to look at by right-clicking on any row and selecting 'Save as HAR with content'.
