Why are atlassian cloud producs so slow? Edited

Just configuring some confluence spaces and permissions is making me insane because it is really really slow.


Switching a TAB in the confluence settings literally takes 10 seconds!


How is this acceptable in 2021?

Is there anything we can do about that?

I can confirm this behavior.

Jira and Confluence behave quite sluggish during business hours. It's varying but most of the time it's slow.

I'm doing quite a bit of work in the evenings (CEST, 9pm) where speeds are always very fast (as expected).

During slow periods, I have the same experience using the same services over 4G, so I can pretty much exclude the local network or machine.

My guess is that this is down to the overall load during business hours.

FYI: there appear to be a few things in the works wrt. performance (Q3-Q4 2021):

You can check a few things on your end:

  • Are other users (admins, or non-admins) experiencing long load times too?
  • Does the Atlassian Status Page show something other than "Operational" for Confluence at the time?
  • Have you tried using a different browser to check the speed for the exact same operation? If it's much faster in another browser, well, it's a browser issue. Try things like clearing cache, disabling extensions, closing/restarting the browser and testing with no other tabs open, etc.
  • How is your network speed and latency? Actually run some network tests. Atlassian cloud products are "chatty", so a high latency can hurt. LAN hardware and config can be impactful.
  • Some organizational security applications can affect performance. Are there network monitors or antivirus apps running?
  • Run a performance monitor on your computer to watch CPU, I/O, network, etc. as you're using Confluence. Is something else (maybe in the background) using a lot of resources?
  • Do you have enough RAM? Is your computer more than 3 years old? etc.

Most people with performance concerns like this experience them only intermittently. The above incomplete list is some of the non-Atlassian things that can substantially affect perceived speed.

There are also times when the Atlassiverse is not performing optimally, but they monitor and correct those issues, so they should not persist for days. If they do, reaching out to support is the next step.
