Profile Server to determine performance blocks
Currently it's taking 5 seconds(!) to refresh the elog, and 3 seconds to preform the initial load even if the limit is only one entry. This is an order of magnitude slower than it should be. In fact, the browser spends a good 1.5s just waiting for the server to respond.
The old elog is considerably faster at around 300ms for page load (DOMContentLoaded), with Images appearing after that.
Profiling which function is taking the most time would help determine what is causing the Elog to be so slow.
