    Make 'object save' fast again

    'openstack object save' is critically slow to download big objects. While
    we 'stream' (chunked download) the data, the default chunks_size
    is 1 byte [1], which is terribly inefficient.

Unfortunately this patch doesn't fix the issue (though it should help after the issue itself got fixed).

The slow part is happening a few lines before: https://github.com/openstack/python-openstackclient/blob/master/openstackclient/api/object_store_v1.py#L372-L377

I just run a download of a 10MB object using the merged patch from openstackclient, and it took 204 seconds (compared to around 2 seconds with the swift CLI).

I continue investigating this.

Christian, jordanp mentioned that https://review.openstack.org/#/c/416249/6 was also needed, so he installed the master version of keystoneauth as well.

I confirm. You need https://review.openstack.org/#/c/416249/6 to see the real benefit of increasing the chunk size.

Ah, nice - I just stumbled upon the same this minute. Thanks!

This issue was fixed in the openstack/python-openstackclient 3.7.0 release.

How can I get this in Newton release?
Latest release of python-openstackclient on my machine is 3.2.0 and I am also facing the same issue. Downloads are very slow.

Steve Martinelli (stevemar) wrote :

install python-openstackclient in a virtualenv so you can avoid dependency hell and mixing server releases with client releases:

  $ virtualenv osc
  $ source osc/bin/activate
  (osc) $ pip install python-openstackclient (should install latest)

Thanks Steve.
It seems the problem is somewhere else. Even after using latest openstackclient, download is very slow.
