View Full Version : Performance Issue with Large Menus

08-24-2007, 04:07 PM
I have a menu that has over 400 listed items.

When I load a page with this menu, each listed item is load like an image (in MSIE the status bar counts down from 409 to 0 items remaining).

Is there a trick to improving rendering performance?

I'm running on an MS Windows Advanced Server 2003, Oracle Application Server 10g R2 (Apache), intel box with 8 duo core 64-bit processors and 16 Gigs of RAM so I'm pretty sure the server isn't the issue.

All other other web pages load fine.

When I remove the UDM menu, the page loads fine. No arrow images are used in the menus.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Can you post an URL to your site? Or to a development server?

It's a global corporate intranet site without public access. You would have to be a part of the network or part of the virtual private network to access the site.

Basically, you can test yourself by create a menu of 400 listed items and see for yourself.

I'll make a test menu with 500+ items and check it out. This is only on IE right? Any particular version? IE6 only or both IE6 and 7?

Hi bcarl314,

Any news about the performance issue with high number of li?
In MSIE, I see the item count "(409 items remaining)...."
In Firefox, I see a corresponding "Transferring data..."
