We have done an initial load test of one Adobe form within our Portal and the initial results are not good. as the volume of data transported over the network is excessive. This will result in serious performance problems for our more remote locations (MY, AU) and disappointing performance for others. This means this is a highly urgent problem for us that potentially impacts our whole Interactive forms strategy.
what are the possibilities to reduce data transfer size?
Any other tips that may be available to improve performance are highly appreciated as well.
If you are using the Same ADS for all your applications deployed across locations than you can do the following settings, where initially form load will same time. but, when you will try to load the application next time onwards the performance improoves.
In form Designer , go to Edit -> Form properties --> performance --> choose "allow form rendering to be cached on server".
If you are thinking about the performance due to data load, then you should carefully review about the use of design elemnts such as Dropdowns, search helps etc. in your form.( Webdynpro native design elemnts should improove the performance to a large extent)
