Description Jan Safranek 2013-09-04 07:00:10 EDT

Each request inside WBEMConnection opens new TCP connection to CIMOM, which includes TLS handshake (if enabled). This slows down whole communication a lot.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

import pywbem
c = pywbem.WBEMConnection("https://localhost", ("root", "opensesame"))
while True:

Actual results:
in wireshark, I see lot of separate TCP connections

Expected results:
One TCP connection with HTTP keep-alive enabled.
