Appium is running slow

Hi Johan, John,

Appium is running very very awfully slow on my setup box. Don’t know why, Is it a know issue or am I doing something funny here?

OSx 10.9
xCode 5.1.1
Appium latest from source
Using c# selenium bindings to write test code

Here are my capabiities

   DesiredCapabilities capabilities = new DesiredCapabilities();
   System.TimeSpan t = new TimeSpan(0, 10, 0);

   capabilities.SetCapability("deviceName", "iPhone");
   capabilities.SetCapability("platformName", "iOS");
   capabilities.SetCapability("platformVersion", "7.1");
   capabilities.SetCapability("browserName", "safari");
    driver = new AppiumDriver(new Uri(remoteDriverHost), capabilities, t);

Its randomly taking 5-10 min to launch safari and navigate to app URL…

After Gallio-mbUnit testrunner timeout expires it throws this exception

“The HTTP request to the remote WebDriver server for URL http://xxxx:4723/wd/hub/session timed out after 600 seconds.”

And the appium console has this log

“Failed to handle kevent()”

After this then comes the post request from appium server, till that time the testrunner timeout gets expired…

info: <-----POST /wd/hub/session/ – ms –

Can you please shed some light… I have no clue whats going on…
