gpg and trustdb very slow
Has anyone else noticed that using gpg with debian-keyring 2001.09.03
results in excessively slow trustdb-related things?
For example, it often takes me 10 minutes to verify a gpg signed mail
now. Strace shows literally hundreds of thousands of seeks and reads in
the trustdb file, with many thousands of duplicated reads of each record.
Another example, I ran gpg --list-keys 6 hours ago. It's not done yet.
This on a P2-300, 256mb ram. The slowdown is because it is evidently
inserting each key into the trustdb in turn, and a single insert takes
It does seem that after doing this thing with the trustdb for a key,
future uses of that key are as fast as I used to expect.
