Hello! I am having some performance problems when running pulumi updates. Previews are fast but the update are slow. During the update pulumi makes a lot of api calls to a checkpoint url like this
<**> update uuid **/checkpoint
each of which takes around 2 - 5 seconds, just now it took 7 minutes to update 1 resource in a (stack that reads 13 resources) anyone have any idea what might be wrong? It did not used to be this slow.
For the update 175 calls to
was made, most of which were checkpoints.
