I am running TeamCity v5.0.3 on a Windows Server 2003 32Bit VM. I have created a configuration on that server. With the "Dependencies" section blank, I can switch to the "Agent Requirements" section smoothly and quickly. When I add the large list of dependencies (I count 43 snapshot dependencies), then click on the "Agent Requirements", it takes several minutes to load; regardless of what is in that section (blank or populated). The load process is slow no matter how many times I try to access that section.
On the TeamCity server, I noticed the tomcat6.exe process was pegged at 100% CPU time the entire time it was trying to load the "Agent Requirements" page. I tried restarting the service and also restarting the entire VM. Same result. I tried copying the configuration and the copy exhibited the same slowdown. I then deleted the configuration completely and started a "new" configuration with the same parameters. Slow down appeared but only after I added the dependencies.
I have run this exact same configuration (with the snapshot dependencies included) on a TeamCity v5.0.1 server and this did not happen. Any suggestions? Thanks!
