Amazon Cloud9 slow


#1

Hi,

I am trying out Amazon Cloud9 with Ruby/Rails. When I do the same actions in both Amazon Cloud9 (https://us-east-2.console.aws.amazon.com/cloud9/ide) and the “old” Cloud9 (https://ide.c9.io), Amazon reacts very slow. A command like ‘bundle install’ takes a couple of seconds to start running. Using the same PC, browser, Internet connection.
Is there any explanation? Should I tune the Amazon Cloud9 some way?

If this is only popping up after using the IDE for a while, you’re using a t2.* host (the default Free-tier machine is a t2.micro), and you’re running CPU-intensive programs, you may be using up your burst CPU credits for the instance.
