Can anyone explain why it's taking so long?

  • That does seem high. The IP address that shows up in your browser tools indicates that your request was routed to one of the CloudFront edge locations in Rio de Janeiro. Were you physically near there the time? – Michael - sqlbot May 7 '18 at 22:33
  • Yes. Im in Argentina. Tried the same from servers in the US and one time took 2sec also. – Diego Jancic May 7 '18 at 23:21
  • Hi Diego, did you find any solution to this problem? – Typo Feb 18 '19 at 18:18
  • @Typo I don't remember. I guess it just went away (or maybe it's still slow but not so much). – Diego Jancic Feb 23 '19 at 23:09
