This ticket probably is more to do with the Mercurial deployment than with the code for the Mercurial subsystem. Should I file this ticket somewhere else?
At around 2019-11-03 20:30 UTC and in the following 15-30 minutes I executed several
hg out commands from my computer with respect to my repository https://hg.sr.ht/~sschwarzer/vppdiff/log . Most of these invocations took around 15 and in one case over 30 seconds despite a rather small repository with at that time 9 not-pushed commits.
hg push was also rather slow (11 s in at least one case).
Ping latency to hg.sr.ht from my computer currently is about 110 ms, so I assume this isn't a problem with the network connection to hg.sr.ht .
Did the slow response only happen around that time, or does it also happen now? For me at the time of this reply, the response time for
hg outis consistently around 5 seconds.
At this time (2019-11-04 08:13 UTC)
hg outtakes 8.0 seconds and
hg push8.4 seconds (three measurements each with
time). Both commands were for no commits to push, if that matters.
I'm going to close this now since we pushed several optimizations months ago and haven't heard complaints since.
