Datatables, MongoDB, Server side processing

Hey all,

I am still quite new to this world and am learning as I go. I am trying to setup a personal project for a campaign database. Right now I have it setup as an MVC app with CRUD operations that projects into a bootstrap dataTable. This is all working fine, but when I load sample data with over 90,000+ entries the page takes over 5 minutes to load.

It seems like I need “server side processing,” which I understand, but am unsure of where to input or more generally how to go about this. Any direction of where to go from here would be much appreciated.

Here is the GitHub link to the repo:
