Too sluggish rendering in general browser(chrome/firefox) compared to Neo4j native browser connection


(Anselmjeong) #1

When I connect Neo4j via included browser application in desktop package (for windows), the rendering of the output graph is quite speedy and responsive. However, when I connect via "http" on chrome or firefox, then the rendering becomes so sluggish that if I try to move a node then the whole system will not response for quite a while (may be 5 to 10 seconds). Is there any reason why http connection is so slow? To my understanding, it will also use BOLT protocol behind the back.

I want to set up a remote Neo4j server in a linux box and to connect it from multiple places. Therefore, I have no other option except to connect via ordinary browser. So the problem is critical to me....

Meanwhile, is there any standalone Neo4j browser application like the one included in the desktop package? Then, I should be able to install it anywhere from which I can connect Neo4j server.

Thanks.
