Describe the issue or problem
When attempting to publish or modify a submission that contains multiple or large files (exporting the submission results in a 700MB export file), the operation seems to takes an excessively long time to complete (up to 1 minute 30). It appears that the interface is unnecessarily waiting for a completion confirmation, the page can be refreshed during this time to show that the action has been completed.
Steps I took leading up to the issue
- Access a submission that contains multiple or large files
- Attempt to publish the submission or modify the publication files
- Wait for an excessively long time for the interface to show the operation have been completed
- Notice that refreshing the page during this time show the action have already be completed
What application are you using?
I have observed that the size of the submission on the server increases significantly when numerous changes are made to the files (since each version is kept as a file history). This appears to be causing the slow performance although normally the file history should not have any influence on individual file changes or submission publishing. I have not experienced this issue with smaller submissions. No error message is displayed.
