Local Development Fabric Storage Slow RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does anyone know why reads and writes from local development fabric blob storage takes anywhere from 300ms to 1200ms per request?  This is running on my local machine -- why is it so slow?

  • Am I the only person who experiences this?  Why would a request to pull a 5KB blob from localhost to localhost take longer than a second?  It's actually faster for me to access real cloud blobs than it is to access them locally.

  • I've got a project where I'm uploading 100,000+ blobs (~1.3kb each) on startup but it is taking several hours to complete for what should be a simple SQL INSERT (for development storage), not to mention DSService.exe is using 75-85% of my CPU for the entire process.

  • This seems very suspect.  I'm having the same problems -- I can't imagine why it is so slow to access the fabric locally.

  • I'm also having a lot of problems with local storage, specially regarding to its performance. Actually, it takes more than 60s to write a 16.7kb blob to it, where it takes only a few ms to write the same file to the production storage.

  • Based on my understanding, Azure storage is not SQL server based like DevStorage is. So it might be quite possible to have difference in performances betweeb DevStorage and Azure Storage.

  • This is still a huge problem. I can't even delete files from development blob storage that are bigger than about 50 MB because the operation just times out.

  • It remains bugged in the 1.4 SDK release.  For any kind of high I/O activity with development storage requests just get dropped.

  • I'm having the same issue. At first I thought it was a threading issue, but having a single thread attempt to write both a queued message and a blob to dev storage takes upwards of 2 seconds per pair.

    It's not a show stopper for me, but it makes some types of tests difficult.

  • Would be helpful for Microsoft to address this issue.  Either acknowledge it or discuss plans for fixing the developer story for local storage.  It is abysmal in current form.
