HI,
On loading my web application i see the jquery.min.js is taking a lot of time. Here is the details in network tab :
Screen-Shot-2016-09-30-at-2.17.09-PM.pngI have uploded the jquery.min.js on my server and this is like making my application really slow... Just 24 KB and it takes 1.3 s to download it...
Any suggestion on improving the performance of this ?
Also this happens randomly...sometimes the file will get downloaded in 200 ms also.
This is have noticed for other files that are getting downloaded sometimes the TTFB is around 2 seconds for a file otherwise most of the times its fine...

Thanks

Well, the reasons for slow execution:
  • the server requests takes a long time (slow PHP script)
  • you got other processes running that take up CPU power
  • your web server kills idle worker processes, having to start them again when you do your requests
  • Chrome (or any other browser you may use) will only execute two requests to the same server at once and will queue others, making them seem slower
So you can try to:
1)  Run a browser debugger like Firebug in Firefox or the Chrome inspector that lets you watch the network requests. Verify that the issue is the time between when the HTTP request is sent to your server and when the response is received. Once verified, you have nothing further to do in the browser - go fix the server to respond faster.
2) Make sure its not getting stuck in loops longer than it needs to, etc. make sure your server is configured correctly, THEN crack open the profiler.
3) Do something for faster execution.  for example: compress your .js file, quality source code and Sql query in the server side. also, you can link to these links in follow instead of use js lib in your page:
