Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1266060
fedora-easy-karma is very slow when connecting to the internet
Last modified: 2017-05-17 11:11:23 EDT
Description of problem:
Whenever f-e-k is making a network connection, it is _very_ slow. Fetching the updates page from Bodhi takes ~60 seconds on a 50 MBit/s internet connection.
I made sure it is not my internet connection to make it that slow.
Logging in on FAS takes another ~20 seconds. CPU load is low.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
We pushed out some optimizations to the bodhi2 server on Monday, Sept 28th which should have made things faster.
Can you confirm? If so, can we close this bug?

Getting the update took 2 minutes here and logging in to FAS was slow as well. However it is nothing that f-e-k can improve afaics, since it is the servers that are slow.
I have the impression that it is even slower. At least it is not faster. Still takes >20 seconds for the first update page to fetch and >60 seconds in total.
I just added the f-e-k query to the 'perf-test' script we're using to benchmark new code that gets added. Hopefully we can use that to zero in on what's making it so slow. https://github.com/fedora-infra/bodhi/commit/7fc1092030aad93dc50e710499f78fa5d6f4782e
An update: I checked today and it currently takes ~30s per page.
Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
It might be useful to have f-e-k show the dialog for updates as they come in and not wait until info about all updates are downloaded from Bodhi.

This is still present.

Still takes long, but not that long any more I think.
