IE Performance Setting – page load in CRM

Sometimes an instance of MS Dynamics CRM can rely heavily on JavaScript, and ‘On Load’ this can have an effect on page performance.

If this occurs then it can be very frustrating for a user point of view and lead to support calls or disgruntled users. Thanks to a colleague who had spoken to Microsoft about this issue when encountered in IE, there is something you can do on your local machine to improve performance.

Whilst it is suggested you try and avoid the over-use of JavaScript or other performance affecting configurations On Load of an entity form, this happens from time to time.

So what is the fix?  

The fix is to increase the maximum number of connections per server from 2 to 10 on the local machine/PC, the steps to complete are as follows (please note this applied to Internet Explorer);

  1. Start Registry Editor.
  2. Locate the following key in the registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MAIN\FeatureControl\FEATURE_MAXCONNECTIONSPERSERVER

  1. On the Edit menu, point to New, click DWORD Value, and then add the following registry values:

Value name: iexplore.exe Value data: 10 Base: Decimal Note  – set this value to the connection limit that you want for HTTP 1.1 connections. By setting the value to 10, you increase the connection limit to 10.

  1. Locate and then click the following registry sub-key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MAIN\FeatureControl\FEATURE_MAXCONNECTIONSPER1_0SERVER

  1. On the Edit menu, point to New, click DWORD Value, and then add the following registry values:

Value name: iexplore.exe Value data: 10 Base: Decimal Note set this value to the connection limit that you want for HTTP 1.1 connections. By setting the value to 10, you increase the connection limit to 10.

  1. Exit Registry Editor
  2. Close and Restart IE.

If you do not have admin’ rights to your local machine you may need to speak to your IT service desk. Hope this helps some of you out.

Happy CRM’ing
