So I was setting up LXD on Akai and discovered that you get what you pay for.
Although the server itself is fast, downloading images to install virtual servers was dead slow. About 1MB per second. Grumble grumble. But at least once downloaded they're cached and refreshed automatically, so I don't need to care.
Then I discovered that the contributed images repo wouldn't respond at all. Wouldn't even give a listing, much less download an image.
Doing some quick Googling about the images repo I notice this question: Are you running IPv6?
I was indeed running IPv6.
Now I'm not.
Thanks, IPv6. Thanks a lot.
Image downloads are around 10MB per second now - not super fast but fast enough - and launching a container takes around four seconds, exactly what I'd expect for that CPU.
Also, systemd-resolv is the stupidest thing I've ever seen.
IPv6 has been around forever and we're still seeing this kind of problem. Wonderful.

Anyone who lets PÃ¶ttering design, build, or write anything deserves what happens to them.
