Thank you, Allin!
But I guess there is a bug in dbnonmics 0.4 with Windows 10. Bundle
requests via mask are slow as before (see for examble the attached scipt).
I see what you mean. Running a slightly cut-down version of your
multi-series request, with mask "DEU+GBR+IAA..Q" and a maximum of
250 series, I'm seeing timings and JSON sizes as follows:
dbnomics 0.4, with metadata: 0m56.569s, 2317360 bytes
dbnomics 0.4, no metadata: 0m55.649s, 2296071 bytes
So cutting out the metadata makes little difference to the time or
size. (Up till now we haven't been setting metadata=0 for this sort
of request -- we missed this case -- but it hardly helps.)
If I invoke the dbnomics v21 API instead, I get this:
time 0m4.886s, size 1905768 bytes
I still have to determine what's taking 10 times as long: dbnomics
or gretl's processing of the data. But at this point my suspicion is
that it's dbnomics.
And single requests such as
data ECB/IRS/M.IT.L.L40.CI.0000.EUR.N.Z are aborted immediatly
"Keine Datenbank wurde geöffnet"=no databank was opened
I'm not able to replicate that. I tried on Windows 10 today and the
series arrived immediately.
