Pkg: 60s lag

I will preface this post by saying that I doubt this could have anything to do with Pkg.jl or

However, this is what I observe (numbers are seconds since start of build stage):

So it pulls 8 items and then waits ~60 seconds. JULIA_NUM_THREADS is 8 and this section of Pkg.jl is asynchronous, so I interpret that there is something adding a 60 second delay to each request.

I am doing this from behind a firewall and there is basically unknown network infrastructure between me and the wider internet. Does anyone know what questions I should even be asking here?

  1. What version of Julia are you running?
  2. For β‰₯ 1.5, are you able to connect to

I can ping without problem.

Should I be setting something to trigger the β€œuse only libgit2” path here?

You can do export JULIA_PKG_SERVER=β€œβ€ to avoid using the package server but that may not be better depending on the situation.

It was way faster. Thanks!

In terms of profiling, I instantiated my project in ~2.5 minutes after export JULIA_PKG_SERVER="", while it was taking me 30-60 minutes without it.
