We use Domino web server R5. In a web application with plenty of graphics, we experience severe performance degradation when using https (compared to http).
One theory is that the SRC attribute (in the html) for the graphic/icon requires the browser to get each of the gif/jpeg file from the web server and with https in Domino R5, each new request needs to be authenticated ?! because R5 (and R6) does not support "keep-alive" requests. Is that the reason ?
Can https be made to work with respective response time in R5/R6 ?
