Is package lookup on AUR a bit slow today or is it just me?

I just checked updates to the AUR packages with yay and it took 20 seconds:

~🐸  time yay -Qua
real    20.152  (cpu: 1%, mem: 48k)
user    0.348
sys     0.047

That’s rather slow, compared to what I’m used to. Does anyone have any clue to what’s going on?

Holy moly. 39 secs for me.

What did you do now?

Slightly better, but 10 s is still too long. Since it is not on my end, it seems they are having some server issues.

zsh is better :smiley:

BTW, if you want your zsh time to look like bash time just set your TIMEFMT variable :wink:

What I have in my .zshrc:

export TIMEFMT=$'\033[1mreal\t%*E\033[0m\t(cpu: %P, mem: %Mk)\nuser\t%*U\nsys\t%*S'

man time for more info :wink:

After sleeping on it, the problem seems to have fixed itself (at least from my perspective):

~🐸  time yay -Qua
real    0.593   (cpu: 62%, mem: 47k)
user    0.328
sys     0.045

Now, that’s more like it!
