Optimizely impact on app performance
How does Optimizely impact app performance? It looks like when I connect to the Optimizely editor, a socket is being open. Won’t this affect the live performance of the app?
Thanks for asking this. Optimizely should have very little impact on the performance of your app. When connecting to the Optimizely editor a socket is opened when the app enters “Edit Mode”. This only happens when connecting to the editor and the socket does not open for your users.
The SDK is 1-2MB (which is very small) and all experiment changes are made locally to the app. Network requests are made every 2 minutes, and this interval is customizable. Network requests are made to:
- Download the config file which contains your experiment and variation data
- Return tracked data (e.g. conversion and revenue data)
