Description Pavel Moravec 2015-10-05 08:25:56 EDT
Description of problem:
Having a synchronization plan with many products associated, listing products takes several minutes. Example: for 20 products, all added into a single sync plan, "hammer product list" takes 4 minutes.

The reason is - per hammer debug logs - caused by the search logic that:
- generates a list of all products
- for each product in the list, it checks presence of sync plan associated with the product
- if the sync plan exists, it lists all products within the sync plan (due to an unknown reason - but _this_ is the culprit of the BZ)

Due to the above, time complexity of product listing is quadratic to the number of products in the (biggest) sync plan.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable 20 products
2. count time to "hammer product list"
3. create 20 sync plans, each having 1 product
4. count time to "hammer product list"
5. put all products into one sync plan
6. count time to "hammer product list"

Actual results:
2. and 4. shows very similar times
6. shows extraordinary higher time

Expected results:
2, 4 and 6 to show similar execution times
Time to list products should not depend on number of products in a sync plan

Additional info:
The issue is nicely evident when enabling hammer debugs and grepping for e.g. "label" there in REST API "hammer product list" response. Each product in a sync plan is written there as many times as the number of products in the sync plan is.
