Salesforce is the most renowned cloud-based solution across the globe. So any Salesforce performance issue can affect thousands of users. Salesforce provides online status dashboards so that users can check if the application is working to expectations or not. However, it doesn’t show the details of the Salesforce delivery path. 

As it is a complex application with various functionalities, it is essential to track the Salesforce performance issues to avoid unwanted circumstances affecting the work process. In addition, sometimes, many problems are not specific to Salesforce. Instead, they are simply SaaS service within the customer base, and the ecosystem of plugins are larger with Salesforce than other SaaS providers. 

Today in this article, CloudVandana will discuss five issues that can decrease speed and performance.

Slow performance and slow loading pages can cause frustration in users and lead to a drain on business resources. 

Let’s look at the problems that affect Salesforce Performance issues and slow down the load speed. 

5 Common Issues With Salesforce Performance

There are various issues associated with Salesforce’s low performance. Among those numerous reasons, CloudVandana shares five key points.

1. Low-Quality Bandwidth

If a SaaS application such as Salesforce performs poorly, many organizations think of investing much in bandwidth. So, before upgrading the bandwidth, the experts should find out if the problem is holding back the Salesforce performance or not. But getting more bandwidth is not a solution for making this platform faster for better performance. Instead, developers should get higher-quality bandwidth. As web applications are TCP-based, even a small amount of packet loss can significantly impact the performance. As a result, many big organizations upgrade their editions for better equipment, better tolerance, and a low chance of packet loss. 

2. Intelligent Caching

Salesforce provides a rich user experience with the help of JavaScript and CSS files. So, users will have to download 3,4 or 5 MB of JavaScript files, which takes a long time if users are facing packet loss. A single page used by the sales team can be composed of various plugins of size 5 MB. Users can activate caching on the network and create a cached derivative stored locally. Thus users can download larger files experiencing better performance. 

3. Impact Of Recreational Traffic

Nowadays, people are using mobile devices to work. This can result in bandwidth capacity being consumed. So, complex applications like Salesforce require resources. An effective way to solve this problem is to set up a different wireless network for other devices. This system helps the developers to allocate bandwidth to every network. 

4. Plugin Usage

Users need to install many plugins within the Salesforce instance. Sometimes these plugins can hurt the overall end-user experience.  These external plugins manage most data transfer, sales, marketing, and accounting capabilities. So developers should consider the number of bandwidths that the plugins are using as too much usage of plugins can affect the performance of Salesforce. 

5. Technical Debt

Technical debt is another challenge that can affect the load speed. It can be produced by many new fields, backdated Workflows, Apex Code, Process Builder, or old workarounds.
