Web Console Too Slow

John GonzalesJohn Gonzales Junior MemberPosts: 609
How fast should I be able to communicate with a master using Web Console. I'm not talking baud rates, but it takes several seconds to several minutes for pages to load sometimes even on a local network connection. Are there some suggestions to speeding up the communication with Web Console on the NI-x100 masters?

Thanks.

    Presuming that you are referring to G3 browser touchpanels, it's flaky, and it always takes a while to load, and sometimes it takes a long while, and sometimes it doesn't work at all.

    Thanks NMarkRoberts. I'm actually referring to the web console built into the masters. You know the one where you use an internet browser on port 80 (default). I needed to change some settings on the master and needed to use a client's PC. All I had access to was an internet browser on his machine and the web interface was sooooo slow.

    OK that's never given me any trouble.

    I've had the same problem. I'm on a LAN thats usually pretty high speed, but using the web console just crawls.

    I wonder if this is part of the same thing that makes the G3Panels so slow . . .

    the new master firmware (354) fixes this. the online tree display seems to be still broken however.

    Is the web console affected by the duet memory setting? I was under the impression that it's all running under Tomcat or a similar Java-based web-app framework. I would try bumping the memory up...

    Thanks for the responses guys. I was thinking the same as you Jeremy and increased the Duet memory to 12M (telnet in and use "SET DUET" command) when I noticed how slow it was yesterday. It seemed to do a little better with the increased memory where at least the pages eventually loaded instead of crashing, but overall speed was still very slow.

    I'll give the firmware update a try and see if it helps. I'll post some results a little later today.

    Sorry for the long delay in updating on this issue. We updated the firmware to v3.21.354 but access via port 80 is still s-l-o-o-o-o-w, even when connecting locally as a client on the local area network. It's not critical for us to access via port 80, but I still think it should work properly. Any other ideas?

    I think the load speed has increased and it doesn't hang (freeze) like before. what I do now is just skip it using it and use vnc.

    the panels load instantly with vnc.

    I was having this problem, even after installing 354 firmware, but doing a clean disk and setting duet memory to 5MB will do the job.
