Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 198867
bugzilla.redhat.com performance very poor
Last modified: 2007-04-18 13:45:58 EDT
Description of problem:
bugzilla.redhat.com is consistently slow to load, and particularly slow to
create a bug. This has been the case for a long while now, although I've only
got frustrated enough to raise this bug today! :-)
I think the facility itself is very good, but the performance (whether it be the
back-end database, the hardware hosting it, the web server (ssl, etc), or a
combo) is really not a good advertisement for bugzilla, MySQL, or indeed RHEL.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
James, are you referring to the time taken from clicking Submit the bug report
until you get the bug submitted page (with the redirect to the submitted report) ?
Well, trying not to sound too critical, it's all pretty slow. Queries are slow,
even when you open a bug ("Enter Bug (expert)"), it takes a relatively long time
to load all the values for the fields (for example "product" and "version").
I don't have quantitative data, but it just isn't "snappy", like google, for
example. I realize google doesn't use RDBMS's for it's search, but I'd still
expect subsecond query response time. I realize SSL adds a major overhead though.
Moving to new server in the coming weeks. Please stay tuned.
