UNBELIEVABLE performance optimization for XPages apps just by using the new Domino 8.5.3 server
I just made my first test with one XPage of a moderate complex intranet application. Please, make sure you're seated properly while enjoying these numbers:
Domino 8.5.2: 94 HTTP requests, 98.15KB data
Domino 8.5.3: 29 HTTP requests, 9.5KB data
I tested that from my home where I only have a moderately slow internet connection. The app ran on a server which resides in some datacenter somewhere.
Here are how long it actually took to load the page:
Domino 8.5.2: 12 seconds
Domino 8.5.3: 1 second
If you have XPages apps, this is your reason why your organization should update as soon as possible.
A big thank you goes to the IBM engineers who made this possible. And I'm curious: do LAMP and Microsoft or other web development environments provide such a feature?
