My group has been using MaaS for a few years and the UI has always been pretty slow. However, now that we have around 2,000 machines it’s basically unusable. Users must wait around two minutes for the machines to populate in the landing page. Then, after clicking on a node, users have to wait another 3 or 4 minutes for the node page to populate. Most users simply click on a node, switch to other work tasks, then come back a while later to see if the page has loaded. When setting up new machines this seriously affects productivity to the point that we’re considering alternative products.
Both the web service and database are hosted on 72 thread servers with 768 GB of RAM, 2x40 Gb ethernet, and RAID6 SSD storage. It seems unlikely that the server hardware is the problem.
Is anyone else running MaaS with this many resources? What is the expected speed that 2,000 nodes should load? I would be happy with anything under 5 seconds - but we’re a couple orders of magnitude off at the moment.
