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.
Assume that I have two functions to implement, one is to list all the
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 ?
I don't know what technology or tools are you using to write that
program, but if you are using Python then you don't need to import it twice.
If for whatever the reason you decide to call external python scripts
from another program then you will have to pay the price of the startup
of the Python SDK. If that is unacceptable because of performance then
you should look for a different way to access the RESTAPI, like sending
XML or JSON directly, or using the Java SDK, or rbovirt, it all depends
on the technology that you are using for your application.
