I observed that there’s one part in my snap recipe that takes extremely long in the priming step compared to others.
The part uses the
dump plugin and is staged in less than a minute, but priming takes up to 15 minutes. The contents that must be staged/primed are less than 1500 files weighting ~80MB. Other similar parts in weight and amount of files using the same plugin don’t have this behaviour and they are primed quite fast.
According to the documentation,
prime step “copies the staged components into the priming area, to their final locations for the resulting snap” so I don’t understand why is taking that long.
I reproduced this problem by isolating the part in its own recipe, so I know is not resulting of a bad interaction with any of the other parts. Is there any way I can debug this further?
