Fetching and Installing MongoDB 3 suddenly takes too long

#1

For our project, we use mongoDB 3 and need to install it before each build.

While this usually takes less than a minute, it suddenly started taking over 15. It’s still running at the time of this writing.

What are these abysmal speeds I’m seeing?


#2

Sometimes there are intermittent network issues between AWS and various other places. Typically it will clear itself up. How long has this been happening for?


#3

It only happened for the one build and cleared itself up for the rest. But that one build took about 40 mins as opposed to our usual 3-4.


#4

It was very likely an intermittent network issue.
