Very Slow Rendering of Graphs

Mar 7, 2011 at 7:47 PM

Is there anyway I can speed up the rendering process of a high vertex/edge count graph? I'm currently working with a dataset of switches and clients on a network. When approaching a count of 200+ vertices or 600+ edges, loading time increases from a split second, to several, and sometimes even minutes. I understand this has to do with the layout algorithm, but I need to either make it quicker, or some how have the layout rendered on a separate thread; yet still be on the same WPF form. Any suggestions?
