Hi! I'm experiencing some performance problems with abrt in fedora 23: it usually takes up to 9-10 seconds to load on boot, which I think is a rather long time (and I've seen it taking much less on other systems) just for that service to start; oreover, it's also slowing the entire boot because systemd can't load many other things while abrtd.service is loading. So, is it a bug or some wrong configuration problem or can really abrt be just so slow to start during boot? Thanks in advance!

P. s.: I can also add that the other abrt services (abrt-ccpp, abrt-oops, abrt-xorg, etc.) load in few milliseconds, it's just abrtd.service that takes so long.

This is the output (the other abrt services are faster, so they're not shown): 7.515s abrtd.service 26ms abrt-ccpp.service

abrt takes quite long for me too. Possible reasons: 1. you might have many files from old (previously reported) crashes which are not yet deleted. Try deleting old crashes. 2. you might have crashes happening at startup or at a previous shutdown. Try getting those crashes fixed.

Other than that, I don't know.

Deleting the old crashes reduced its loading time to less than a second, so it worked. Thanks a lot!
