Leapwork consist of all test artifacts such as test case, result videos, logs etc. holding these assets my lead to high Disk space and RAM usage there by reducing the performance in user's machine. However, there are a few tips that will optimize loading time and performance.
- Less nested groups
Groups make the case look more organized, but with a nested structure (groups inside of groups) it takes a lot of memory to get to the deepest nesting level. This is why it’s better to use custom blocks inside of groups rather then nested groups.
- Optimized Retention policies in Studio settings.
The default number of runs to keep is 500, but lowering their number will speed up the loading process. If you need old runs you can manually save the automation runs in some other location on your PC and bring them back to AutomationRuns folder in your project when you need to review the old reports again. Make sure success videos are deleted after 1 hour so that disk space can be saved.
- Fewer open cases
Save and close the cases that are not required by closing the tab.
- Less open reports
Close any unnecessary open reports by closing them from tab.
