Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 627696
auto-update-debuginfo plugin does too much work
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:16:14 EST
Description of problem:
If I say "yum info libbsd", I get to sit and wait for a few minutes to find out that I have 94 debuginfo packages installed.
This seems to be much worse (in the sense of slower) on my F12 machine than F13, but it's counting either way.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Apparently I was comparing F12 to F14; sorry about the confusion.
I know "libbsd" isn't in any debuginfo repos., you know that ... yum, not so much :)
Off hand I can't think of how we can make this better. One problem you may be hitting is if you have some PK thing auto-updating all your repo. data (like yum-updatesd used to do), then you might be getting burnt by:
% fgrep auto-up /etc/PackageKit/Yum.conf
...feel free to ask PK to fix their code instead of just disabling random plugins. You can also just run yum-updatesd, just to get the MD (or yum-cron) ... we'll probably eventually change yum-updatesd and/or make a cyum-updated, to do everything but the dbus stuff.
We've done a few speed improvements to yum between the above fc12 and fc14 versions, but I can't think of anything that would speed this up.
Sorry I couldn't be more help.
