Subject Re: S3 upload poor performance
Date Tue, 10 Mar 2015 14:12:49 GMT
Hi Veit,

Thanks for the detailed report! Feel free to raise a JIRA improvement
[1] for this.

Could you run the same tests using the OkHttp driver [2] and the last
SNAPSHOT version (2.0.0-SNAPSHOT) and tell us the results? In that
snapshot we've upgraded the OkHttp driver to use its interface and use
OkIo, and I'm curious to see if it improves the performance by
default. Also the driver in that version has been made more
configurable, allowing users to bind a custom client when creating the
context, so it is also easier to tweak it if needed.
