Why do JIRA dashboard gadgets use each up to 200 external resources?


my JIRA dashboard requires over 400 external resources, loading 7 MB in 20s. WTF.

  • the "projects" gadget with around 23 projects requires 180 external resources.
  • the "activity stream" gadget with 10 activities shown requires 200 external resources.

Most of them are javascript resources < 3 KB. I have a question ... Why?

Attached a screenshot that shows only the javascript resources.

Hi Christian,

Those javascript would be stored in cache either memory cache or disk cache. 

Since your problem is with slow loading dashboard, can I know if you have reached to Atlassian Support regarding this matter? There are few possible factors that can cause this slowness; network, performance issue on the server, and etc.
