## Symptoms

1. The Space Admin page for a large space with thousands of pages is slow to load.
2. Spaces with fewer pages are not having this issue.

## Cause

The editspace.action calls getPages() in order to populate the drop down to set the home page of the space. In large spaces, the getPage() call can have a significant performance impact, causing load times for that page to take several seconds.

## Workaround

There is a patch attached to this article that will remove the getPages() call from the editspace.action. Please be aware that this patch will break the dropdown menu for selecting a home page in the space. It will still be possible to set the home page using the storeSpace() function in the Remote API.

To install the patch:

2. Create the following directory and place the patch there:

<confluence-install>/confluence/WEB-INF/classes/com/atlassian/confluence/spaces/actions/EditSpaceEntryAction.class

3. Restart Confluence.
