We have an item database with about 50.000 records, limited to 200 records (we need 200, this cannot be lowered for better performance) a lot of records contain an image with the varbinary database storage method. I am unfortunately not able to test if the images are the cause of the performance lag, but i am quite sure, because within seconds there are 100's of mb's used when viewing the item table (other larger tables with just text cause no problems). The problem only occurs on the windows client not on universal, and the problem is exaggerated on wifi or vpn because of the mb's that are transferred to the clients. I have tried to hide the image column (the one for viewing) but the performance dip stayed. Almost as if it is slowed by the existence of the image blob varbinary column. Is the system perhaps trying to show the full images instead of smaller thumbnails? is there a way to limit the mb usage while viewing the grid?
