I'm finding that the performance of the tooltips is varying greatly and
I'd like to understand what is going on behind the scenes and therefore
what factors are affecting this.
Presumably when the cursor s moved over the map, a mouseover event is
triggered and this sends the position information and state of the
layers is sent back to the server via an xmlhttprequest. The web
extensions are used to identify what object on what layer is at the map
location, and the tooltip data is queried and returned to the client,
which is then displayed. So factors affecting this process will be what
is happening on the client machine, the network, and the server at the
time the process occurs.
The performance seems to change a great deal from very good to
unacceptably slow (the user would give up). I find this change strange
because other applications (e.g. MapGuide 6.x) run from the same client
to the same server are not varying nearly as much. It is also strange in
that the initial request for the layout and subsequent requests for
layer data are not particularly slow when the tooltips are. Are there
any settings which can be altered to improve this? This kind of
unreliability could almost rule this technology out in my view.
