Date Sat, 28 Jan 2017 00:41:24 GMT
Michael Jumper created GUACAMOLE-187:

             Summary: Improve performance of layer/surface resize
                 Key: GUACAMOLE-187
             Project: Guacamole
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: guacamole-common-js, guacamole-server
            Reporter: Michael Jumper
            Assignee: Michael Jumper

Resizing a layer is an expensive operation within the client, as it requires making a full
copy of the contents of the canvas backing the layer. By the standard, the contents of the
canvas tag must be cleared when the size is changed, thus the Guacamole client needs to save
and restore the graphical state of the canvas prior to resizing.

Similarly, on the server, resizing a surface involves allocating enough space to hold the
new image and copying the data over. For large surfaces, this can be expensive.
