When I view a set of results in IE on my local drive, the delay while it formats the XML is tolerable.
Over the (100MBps) network, however, it takes 3 to 4 minutes to display the results page. The XML itself is 164KB. I've tried with XP Pro, 2K and Win 98 clients.
Anyone else noticed such poor performance? Any solutions?
We were unable to reproduce this behavior: In both cases the file (size was about 1560 KB) opened within approximately the same amount of time. We think that the behavior you described is caused by an overloaded network or possibly because the CPU was very busy when performing the task.
