Considerations and Usage Notes
Before you implement widespread use of HTTPS in your GVP deployment, consider the following:
Complete use of SSL will affect platform performance and capacity.Lags in fetch times and high CPU usage are normal when SSL is used, because the web server must encrypt every byte of data, and the platform must then decrypt the received data. In addition, an SSL handshake takes place between the web server and the platform before data transmission starts.
