My Upcoming Shows - excessive page size
« on: January 16, 2009, 04:36:21 PM »
I just made a few simply changes to my pending recordings (http://www.icetv.com.au/interactive/myupcomingshows) - I deleted the HD episodes of a recording picked up on HD and SD - and found that the screen refresh seemed to take an awfully long time, even on work's big, fat network (nice and quick).

Turns out that the reason is that the size of the page is about 7Mb!!  That's right... despite only having 15 shows showing for the entire week ahead, a whopping 7+Mb of data is being pulled down to the browser each time I make a change.  That can't be right?!?!  Surely there's something wrong there?  I certainly don't recall the refresh taking this long in the past, so what has changed and why is so much bandwidth being used to pull a simply screen? 

I looked at the page source and it would appear that the entire EPG is being downloaded with each screen refresh then rendered by a little bit of JavaScript.  Methinks someone has made a little error somewhere, hmm?

I'm guessing that someone has updated something recently which has resulted in this altered behaviour and presume that it is not correct.  I doubt you want to be pushing that amount of data at each user request - bad for you and bad for the user - so I would respectfully suggest that someone needs to fix it rather quickly.

eek.  Sorry about that, looks like some debugging info got left in by mistake.  It's fixed now, thanks for reporting it!

Hmm, 93.9Kb - ah yes, that's a lot better!

p.s. Been there, done that, so no worries.
