Description Christian Stadelmann 2015-09-24 08:05:45 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):
fedora-easy-karma-0-0.26.20150921gitc932687a.fc22.noarch
Comment 1 Ralph Bean 2015-09-29 15:55:38 EDT
We pushed out some optimizations[1] to the bodhi2 server on Monday, Sept 28th which should have made things faster.

Can you confirm?  If so, can we close this bug?

Comment 2 Till Maas 2015-09-29 17:28:53 EDT
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.
Comment 3 Christian Stadelmann 2015-09-29 18:09:04 EDT
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.
Comment 4 Ralph Bean 2015-09-29 21:07:29 EDT
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
Comment 5 Ralph Bean 2016-04-04 11:56:56 EDT
An update:  I checked today and it currently takes ~30s per page.
Comment 6 Fedora End Of Life 2016-07-19 15:57:08 EDT
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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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
bug.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
Comment 7 Christian Stadelmann 2016-07-19 16:06:39 EDT
Still present.
Comment 8 Christian Stadelmann 2016-09-19 10:10:28 EDT
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.
