In Topic: Monitor replica performance with high sync time

Verify the NIC speed on the slow replica.
Is the system swapping?
Make sure the CPUs on the slow system are not throttled.

Run atop and watch it during a busy time to see if anything jumps out.

In Topic: Ignoring files and folders in Perforce like gitignore in Git ?

While it's not the same method, one can always ignore files or directories by modifying the client, and adding a view with a '-' prepended. For instance,

        -//fred/lib/....o //<client_name>/lib/....o

would ignore everything with a .o extension anywhere under the lib/ directory at the client's top level (a.k.a., //fred/lib).

Yikes. It would be interesting to run atop and see what's happening (if anything).

Does "p4 lockstat" or "p4 monitor show -aL" show any locks in use?

I have no idea what p4convert is doing with the description field on the submit. Does "p4 monitor show -al" show anything useful? (Assuming you have the server's monitor configurable cranked up; you might set it to 25 for now to debug.)

I have never seen a submit hang except waiting for an edit session to finish, but we also jumped right over 2019.x .

Not that this solves the problem, but you said you had to kill the server PID. Did you try "p4 monitor terminate" for the child PID in question?

What is the value of Root in the client? Does the path exist, and is it writable by you?
