What sort of speed should registers in webfolder load up?
At a school that's been using teachers webfolder for a long time but only been here a while myself so still getting used to it after coming from a SIMS background. I was wondering if any bromcom users can tell me what an "optimum" load time should be for a register... we're regularly getting 15-30 seconds. Which doesn't sound like much but it gets annoying if you have to load one 7 or 8 times a day. I've spoken with bromcom and ran through various things to get the speed down:
- install chrome
- shorten the amount of previous and next sessions that are retrieved when entering your marks, etc
However they tell me that 15 seconds is about normal, but in SIMS it is pretty much instantaneous if you have your server and network configured correctly... I just wanted to check whether this is actually the fastest you can get or not. If anyone has it loading quickly regularly and reliably I'd love to know.
One thing I've noticed is the mobile version tends to load up very quickly every time... but the mobile version is so limited!

When i had a demo installed on site, it was pretty instant, maybe five seconds tops. Maybe you don't notice when just doing tests.
Where is it installed? Can you get quicker access from the server itself?
How many concurrent users are there when it needs loading? Perhaps SIMS is slower to deliver when it's receiving multiple requests.
It takes me 2-3 secs to get into Take Register and 3-4 to load up a register. This might be lower if i was a teacher with a register on my homepage.
I suppose ultimately, if they say that's normal, you'd have to live with it.
