Improve application performance with offline enhancements
Several important enhancements in the offline capability improve the overall performance of Pega Platform™ and offline-enabled applications. The system now can now disable attachment processing during datasync operations. Furthermore, synchronization uses the Redux Clipboard implemented by the core engine, which is lightweight and improves memory consumption and CPU performance. The processing of cases and assignments in the offline queue uses an advanced defer commit algorithm. The offline package size is reduced to changes done in a workpage. To help you troubleshoot problems, error handling during datasync operations is also enhanced.
You can also benefit from better support for large-scale projects that use the offline capability, providing a more robust synchronization of offline-enabled applications. Datasync requests in the lightweight and easy-to-read JSON format now support GNU ZIP (GZIP) compression. In addition, datasync communication does not contain any redundant data. For large-scale projects, the server receives user actions in bundles, which limits processing overhead. The initial datasync operation is executed faster on the client side, which results in shorter login times.
