Dashboards & Visualizations

After converting my advanced XML dashboard to HTML, it seems to be very slow. How can I improve the HTML view's performance?

Communicator

I converted my existing advanced XML dashboard to HTML view (Which allows me to add coloring and other styles to my dashboard).
But, performance of HTML view seems to be very slow.

Is there any way (tips & tricks) to improve performance of the HTML view?
Something like Caching or Pre loading of the page?

After further analysis, I did found that inclusion of “/profiles/shared.js” in converted HTML is taking most of the load time, where as if I replace that with “/simplexml.min/config.js”, page is loading real fast.

<script src="{{SPLUNKWEB_URL_PREFIX}}/static/js/profiles/shared.js"></script>

Is replaced with

<script src="{{SPLUNKWEB_URL_PREFIX}}/static/js/build/simplexml.min/config.js"></script>

Is only your converted html view slow? Because you can also add coloring and styles to an XML dashboard, by providing js and css files:

@ tom_frotscher - Yes only my HTML view is slower, It is taking good amount of time to load all the files (.js, and other files).

It is not just coloring and styles. It is more than that. Just for understanding, I mentioned like that.
