Design Issue Setting node to private is seriously slow

    We're in the middle of our upgrade and noticed permissions went all boinkers. So we're currently manually fixing stuff, and as a protection measure setting all private forums explicitly to be private. However, this is taking forever, and we cannot figure out why?

    It reminds me of the old "deleting a user group" bug I filed before, which also took substantially long, and at times would plain time out.

    We have a large number of forums and groups, but still. There's no reason a simple update like this ought to take 30 seconds.

    Oh, and pretty please, can we get a "inherit all user groups" button per node permission?

    It's actually not a simple operation at all - it causes a large number of caches to have to be rebuilt (though possibly not quite all of them :)). Its speed is dependent on the number of "permission combinations" and nodes you have. Unfortunately, only so much can be done to speed it up as 1 change can affect hundreds or thousands of elements.

    That makes sense. In that case, perpahs increase (or somehow make it admin-configurable) the timeout limit for such operations?

    Thanks :)

    Isn't there a way to prioritise and make the update periodic? Such as the main priority to change viewing permissions, then reading, then writing? This could be done over a time period of a couple of minutes, making the most obvious permissions (viewing/reading/replying) priority.

    I made a forum private.
    But it isn't taking effect.
    Is it possible I have all the settings correct ... but it's just taking time ?
    What are the expected and "maximum" times I should wait ?
