We are successfully running a new obiee 126.96.36.199.2 BP1 installation.
Sometimes the performance of the ui in the Internet Explorer ist very slow. Especially when working with the fusion middleware control or editing big pivot tables (that means more than 20 measures) the response time from the ui is not almost unbearable.
I've read about enabling http compression to solve that but I'm not sure if that's also applicable when working without a separate http server.
Do you observe the same problems? has anyone a solution for that.
You can also try following the MS KB Links below to tune Internet Explorer for better performance. Below is extracted from a white paper on 11g performance tuning.
“How to optimize Internet Explorer” > http://support.microsoft.com/kb/936213
“IE to download more than two files at one time” > http://support.microsoft.com/kb/282402
“IE slow performance or frequent freeze” > http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555942
“Tune IE timeout values” > http://support.microsoft.com/kb/813827
In the IE browser navigate to: Tools -> Internet Options -> Advances -> Security and Locate the “Enable native XMLHTTP support” option and check the check box.
Thank you all for your suggestions. Changing the IE configuration is not that easy because in companies everything is controlled by policies which I can't change that easy.
I disabled preview so I guess the performance problem is not due to insufficient filters or not enough memory to store temporary data.
I guess I will have to see if I can get a firefox installation to test the behaviour...
