Slowness of execution

  • 1.  Slowness of execution

    Posted 02-04-2020 14:42
    ​Hello,

    We have developed a process to work on web application, but the web application is responding were slow when we execute with blue prism but during manual operations it is working smoothly without any issue. we have checked with the RAM occupancy and processor performance when running from blue prism, there was no problem, RAM had enough free space and processor was not completely occupied.
    Browser used in Internet explorer and dur to infrastructure restriction we cannot switch to chrome, so we can only use Internet explorer.

    Thanks.

    Can you explain what you mean by the web application responding slow? Are we talking "Not Responding" issues or the buttons are being clicked successfully but then the app just takes a long time to load the next page or what? Or are you saying it's slow like Blue Prism is taking a long time to click buttons?

    If it seems that Blue Prism is just taking a long time to identify elements, then there are a number of things you can try to improve the speed. Typically the reason it will be slow is if the web page has a lot of elements. The more elements on the page the slower Blue Prism will be (unless using Path as one of the attributes). Some easy first things to try is using the Path if it is NOT a very dynamic application. If there's any chance elements will move around or new elements load in the page based on context, then don't use Path. Next you can try to (and should) use Match Index (typically = 1). If an element is likely to be nearer to the bottom of the page, then consider checking Match Reverse and set to True so it finds the first matching element from the bottom of the page.

    You can also try AA and UIA mode. Sometimes those can be faster.

    ​Hi Dave,

    Blue Prism is identifying elements quickly but when button is clicked the web application is taking long time to load the next page. when we perform the same operation manually then web application quickly to load the next page.
