Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1014663
Content View publish takes 2-10x as long with MDP2

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1014390 +++
Content View publishing of a moderate sized repo (3k packages, RHEL 6.4-x86_64) takes 20+ minutes to publish the first content view in MDP2
2013-10-01T16:07:48-0400: [Worker(delayed_job host:dhcp-8-30-94.lab.eng.rdu2.redhat.com pid:18493)] ContentViewDefinition#generate_repos completed after 1328.9986
With MDP1 it takes around 3 minutes:
2013-09-08T12:11:41-0400: [Worker(delayed_job host:satellite6.usersys.redhat.com pid:2493)] ContentViewDefinition#generate_repos completed after 372.8071
Steps to reproduce:
1) Enable RHEL 6.4 x86_64 from Red Hat repositories
3) create a content view with only this one repo in it, no filters
wait 20 minutes ...
We are touting MDP2 to be faster with CV publishing and it doesn't appear to be so.

Publishing a definition with only two small zoo repos is taking about 100 seconds. 93 seconds are being spent in ContentViewDefinition#generate_repos. Here's a breakdown of the times.
95% of the time here is spent waiting on Pulp.

Here is the pulp log:

I'm using pulp 2.3.0-0.12.alpha but I believe MDP2 may be on 2.3.0-0.14.alpha.
Here are the calls we're making to pulp:
The repo urls:
So I found out the wait times were not because of pulp but because of the code in the method we use to poll pulp tasks' statuses. By changing the sleep time, we were able to reduce the times for the repos in comment #1 from 100+ seconds to less than 30 seconds.
Partha verified that running with a larger repo (rhel) synced in a smaller amount of time. This report is being treated as an anomaly and if get further reports we will re-open it.
Moving to verified as per the above comments.
Pulp 2.3 released.
