When I am creating a chart, I get an error message  that says it "may contain more data points than the browser can effectively render".

Does that mean Chrome (the browser I was using at the time) can't handle the amount of data and render everything?

 

Solution

The message is only a warning message that the requested data may take longer to render. You can most definitely proceed with your chart request.

Typically, the error message occurs when the requested chart is asked to bring back more than 5,000 data points in Chrome. In Internet Explorer and Firefox, because of JavaScript processing, the thresholds are lower before the message appears.
