How to improve Artifactory UI speed? Why is my Artifactory UI slow?

You may encounter a Artifactory User Interface performance issue for the following reasons:

  • ISSUE: Slow UI performance due to system resources
    RESOLUTION: Check your Artifactory's JVM and Database resource while browsing. If the resource is running low, increasing the resource will help improve the UI navigation
  • ISSUE: Slow UI performance in the tree view, when artifact names contain an underscore '_' 
    RESOLUTION: It is planned to be fixed in Q4 2015 (Vote and Watch here to receive update)
  • ISSUE: Slow UI performance because Javascript and CSS files are not minified
    RESOLUTION: Resolved in Artifactory version 4.2.0

If the solution above does not resolve the issue, then please collect following items and send them to JFrog Support for investigation.
