Description normanntp 2009-01-12 06:54:55 EST
Hi Folks, I have very small script for file uploading via ncftput having file size of 10KB, by manual script running it is taking around 2.x to 3 second, but under cron now it is taking above 10 second, previously when i was using Fedora-8 it works fine under cron but after upgrade to Fedora-10, it is taking time, is there any problem or is it normal, kindly advice pls. Thanks, Noman

Hello, I was trying upload small tar file and measuring the time: time ncftpput -u marca -p password computer /home/marca /home/marca/Development/PERL/perl/devel/perl-5.10.0.tar.gz This gives different numbers in cronie: real 0m0.148s user 0m0.003s sys 0m0.012s real 0m0.141s user 0m0.001s sys 0m0.015s real 0m0.110s user 0m0.003s sys 0m0.018s and in vixie-cron: real 0m0.146s user 0m0.001s sys 0m0.025s real 0m0.116s user 0m0.002s sys 0m0.019s and on command line: real 0m0.136s user 0m0.000s sys 0m0.015s real 0m0.094s user 0m0.001s sys 0m0.015s As you can see the time is changing, but I can't say it was slower for cronie in F-10. I didn't notice such problems with different scripts, which I'm using. Could it be your broadband or problem with ncftpput?

Hi Marcela, Thanks for your kind reply, My cron will run after every ten minute. That is not broadband connection, there are two data centers involve in that, i have one server at iweb technology that is virtual machine of xen guest of Fedora-10, and destination side i have Sago.net also another virtual machine of Fedora-10, that same script is running fine under Fedora-8 of those virtual machines of xen, but after upgradation its taking 9+second to upload a file, where in Fedora-8 same script was taking around 2-3 second to upload a 10KB file.. I am waiting for your kind swift reply. Thanks, Noman
Comment 3 Marcela Mašláňová 2009-01-13 10:02:00 EST
I'll install virtual machine and try to test it again. I don't see any reason, why cron should prolong the upload.
Comment 4 Marcela Mašláňová 2009-01-14 04:49:15 EST
I've tested your use case on my virtual machine (qemu). I can't reproduce it here. I'm reassigning this to xen-maitainers, if they have any thoughts what's wrong. There's no obvious reason how could cron slow down the performance.

I've seen this before in Dom-U's running Centos4 and 5. What happens is that normally, the clock on domU is slaved to dom0. Occasionally, the clock on domU somehow gets out of sync, and the domU waits a very long time on things that are timed. The simple test for this case is to run "sleep 1" from the command line. If the clock problem is active, the sleep won't finish for a very long time.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 10. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '10'. Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 10's end of life. Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 10 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping

Fedora 10 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-12-17. Fedora 10 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug. If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
