Re: yum 3.2.23 more than 10x slower than 3.2.21?!

It is really CPU intensive. I see some unicode related stuff in the changelog and my memory goes to years ago (RedHat 8?) when the UTF8 enabled grep
got a similar slowdown (the lib was then improved after that).

Hmmmmm, made other experiments....
Really weird.

#time yum list updates --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo=ROB10\*
(less than 3 seconds)

#time yum list updates --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo=updates
(less than 3 seconds)

#time yum list updates --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo=ROB10\* -- enablerepo=updates
(more than one minute)

ROB10\* is some local repositories, containing mirrored stuff from some repositories, _including fedora_updates_, so the same rpms are found in two different repositories. How can this trigger such a slowdown, I don't know.

I have to correct what I said before, the time is not always spent
on read64() and gettimeofday(); there is a lot of strace-silent activity
(just spurious brk() calls).

Maybe something like hashing of some data structure is taking a really bad


time yum -d 3 --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo=ROB10\*  \
          --enablerepo=updates  list updates | grep 'time:'

and post that output.

I disabled all repos and individually enabled one repo at a time. Each individual repo performance was excellent (couple of seconds). When I included two repos, I start to see the problem. local-mirror-updates is a a low cost (500) local rsync mirror on a GbE network.
