When I use a read call reading from a pipe, the read takes a long time to
return.

Why does this happen?

Thanks

It could be any number of reasons really.

The speed of the pipe
The CPU speed of the server hosting the data you're reading
The load on that particular server
The amount of memory on the server

Any of those could be the reason, and it could also be something that I can't even think of. Maybe a more Linux dedicated site might be able to help you out here and you could in turn share your new found knowledge with us, enriching this place even more.

Good luck Smiley
