I want to be able to view and edit spatial data within a postgis database. I have tried using a WFS with Geoserver - but constantly get 'Empty Response' error and the Network log says the request timed out. However it renders great.
I load the same dataset directly from postgis and I can edit, update and delete no problems.....but it renders HORRENDOUSLY slow (only 115 polygons in the dataset at this stage), to the point where panning around the map is totally impractical for day to day use.
I can also display/edit/update/delete fine, with great panning ability (I assume it is cached or turned into a .lyr file) using ST-Links in ArcGIS.
The fact that the same dataset can be displayed and edited using two different methods indicates to me that the database is fine, and that either the settings/bugs in QGIS are causing an issue - or is there something in Geoserver that may be influencing the inability to edit WFS?
NOTE: The QGIS option for the database 'Use estimated table metadata' is checked and made no difference. 'Use render caching' in the rendering options is checked and made no difference
Can anyone suggest some known issues/areas to troubleshoot to get this fixed - even to stop QGIS from constantly re-requesting data each time I pan would be great!
