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 <<.
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.
