Improve dashboard loading times from 3.5 minutes
Currently the dashboard takes well over 3.5 minutes to load on a gbps broadband connection waiting for
Hi Andy, Thank you for flagging the gzip issue: we are getting this fixed.
My team and I are also experiencing this issue, and have been for several months on high speed internet connections. I believe the primary issue is that the login js being served from the static servers is not being gzipped. I have attached a screenshot showing the loading times of the application, which are over a minute for me. Google PageInsights shows the performance score for atlas to be 0, and suggests several major improvements.
To say the least, this is completely unacceptable. MongoDB Atlas page load times are higher than ideal in many parts of the world, but our analytics show that the vast majority of users do not wait on the order of *minutes*.
When we see reports about load times of this order of magnitude, we've usually been able to pin these down to ISP-specific issues. In fact you can run a test yourself to see if another connection (for example even via your mobile device) is able to load the page much faster: I bet it will. Usually these issues are transient.
We have a plan to deliver the MongoDB Cloud assets via a global CDN in the future and hope to improve this experience over time. I am very sorry that we're getting in your way here in the interim.
