If you are using 3.6 then you are using ovirt-engine-extension-aaa-jdbc,
as it is enabled by default, but looks like it isn't related to your

That line takes a long time to execute because it has to process two
large Python modules: the "params" module that contains a class per each
type used by the API (393 classes) and the "brokers" module that
contains a class per each resource used by the API (358 classes). That
makes a total of 751 classes. In my environment it takes 0.9 seconds,
approx. You may want to use the python profile in your environment and
share the results:

$ cat > profile.py <<.
import cProfile
cProfile.run("from ovirtsdk.api import API")

$ python profile.py

I won't be surprised to see this taking those 3 seconds in a slower

But even if this takes those 3 seconds it shouldn't be a big problem,
because you shouldn't be running that "from ... import ..." line
frequently. Your program should do this once only, when it starts.

Assume that I have two functions to implement, one is to list all the vms belong
to the user, and the other is to retrieve one vm's virt-viewer connection file, as 
far as I can see, I have to write two python scripts and import the ovirtsdk.api in both
scripts, each script has to take the 3 seconds :(

How can I run the "from ... import ..." just once ?
