I'm searching for two words or expressions.
The first word or expression means a situation in which there are too many items displayed on the screen, so that they cause a burden on the user and their rendering causes a burden on the CPU.
The second word is a verb that I can use to describe the deletion or filtering of some of the items in order to prevent this situation.
In order to prevent
(word1), I need to
(word2)the items before sending them to the display module. I keep a list of
un(word2)editems and generate a list of
(word2)editems from it.
Perhaps something having to do with spacing out?
(I can't use the verb "filter" because it has a different meaning in the domain, and it seems to me that it doesn't convey the meaning precisely enough.)
