PackageKit gets updates after resume from suspend/hibernate
Last modified: 2008-06-03 04:40:40 EDT
Description of problem:
It appears that packagekit will instantly check for updates when network
re-connects after a resume from suspend/hibernate. The system is already doing
alot of disk I/O at this point in time, and having PK do work causes a
significant delay / poor interactive response after resume. If PK were to delay
its update checks until 5-10 minutes after network reconnects this would give a
much more pleasant user experiance upon resume.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Resume from hibernate
2. Try to use the machine immediately after network has reconnected
Very poor response due to large amounts of I/O from PK get-updates.py
In 0.2.1 we wait 10 minutes before doing the check. In the 0.1.x codebase we
wait 10 seconds. Do you think this is of sufficient importance to backport the
new code into 0.1.x for F9? I'm going to be pushing 0.2.3 into F9 in a few weeks
Its not super critical - waiting until you're ready to push 0.2.3 into F9
updates is fine - don't waste time on a short-lived backport.
Okay, cool, thanks.
