I recently realized that setting conda_auto_install to true in
galaxy.ini has a noticeable effect in slowing down the start of job
execution. On the first job run after activating conda_auto_install the
job takes a lot longer as conda is actually installing packages, which
is expected. On the following runs, even if there are no packages to be
installed jobs still take longer to start. What's more surprising is
that after deactivating conda_auto_install jobs still take longer to run.
My particular test case was a simple small (12MB) file upload. It
consistently went from 15s to over 30s after activating
conda_auto_install and remained at that even after deactivating it. We
tested running a few tools which presented a noticeable and irreversible
delay after activation of conda_auto_install, but I didn't measure these
delays. I also tested this on fresh installs of galaxy 16.07 and 16.10
with very similar results.
Is this supposed to happen? Is there a way around it besides never
