Relative facilities have been around in CygNet in some shape or form for many years. And along the way, there were enhancements made to Studio to assist in creating multi-facility templated screens based on a relative linking model. However, with Canvas, that relative linking functionality and resolution was baked into the product at the very beginning. In this post, I’m going to discuss some design considerations and implementation ideas that I hope will help as you create Canvas screens.
Recently, I was asked to assist with a customer support call regarding a poorly performing CygNet Studio screen. Having just participated in Dan Snyder’s CygNet Database Service Diagnostics and Performance Tuning breakout session at this year’s WESC, I felt more than ready to take on this challenge. Surprisingly, the actual diagnostic and remediation process required was much more involved than I expected. My hope is that by describing, over the next several posts, the detailed process I went through to decrease the screen load time from 30 seconds to 3 seconds, you may come to understand the nuanced considerations required to craft and verify the most efficient solution for your particular needs.
