Application Gateway management operations are agonizingly slow
[Originally posted to Azure Portal forum - however should have been submitted here]
Most creates and updates for application gateway configuration (back-end pools, rules, listeners, certificates, etc.) take 5-10 minutes to apply. This is not a portal issue as it takes just as long via the API / CLI. (This is with even a single instance App Gateway)
Applying these same settings on Windows Server ARR directly takes only a minute or less, so I'm not sure where the performance issue lies, but there is tremendous room for improvement.
As it is currently, it provides waaaay too much time while waiting to consider the porting costs of a migration to the alternate cloud platform.
Update operations have been enhanced with fast update. The operations which continue to be slow are SSL Policy, SSL certificate, ports and scaling up/down. Most other operations like listener, rules, http settings, backend pool, backend pool members, probes should be of the order of ~1min now.

The changes do not seem to have helped. All changes are still extremely slow.
Boudewijn Plomp commented
Still very and very slow.

I can't believe enable/disable Public IP in Network Interface took roughly 30 minutes to finish. Why such a small change take that much time?
Paul Hines commented
Slow for us too still
Gerhard Pretorius commented
This NOT completed. Simple updated operations on the Gateway still takes between 10 and 20 minutes.
(Not scaling or or SSL related)
The logs shows:
Create or Update Application Gateway (Adding or removing a listener)

Updates are still unacceptably slow. If you don't get somethign to work and want to debug it by changing things, forget it. Prepare to spend the next 3 days waiting for updates and half the time waiting and then watching it Fail!

Over 30 Minutes to Scale up :-( I really hate these things.
Still super slow
Tried updating the http setting of a rule, took 3 minutes and 15 seconds
This is still an issue when will the fast update be rolled out?

I've been working on automating the setup and teardown of application gateways, together with adding 1..n endpoints to them. I really can't believe just how very slow it is working on them. Not only is it slow but, the amount of times I get the "Long running operation timed out" style errors is incredible. How are we supposed to add these to our build pipelines when the admin performance is so very slow.

Yestarday our team started working with this service and I can't belive that creation of simple rules can take up to 30-40 minutes. This ticket was created more than year ago? I heard on the build conference that Azure is top priority and focus now. Really?
Hi, Has this been resolved ? We experiencing times of upto 20 min at times for any updates to the GW.
It takes15min+ to update listener's ssl certificate.
The day passed now it's Autumn and will Winter comes?

Incredibly slow. I have removed a listener, and went for at least 20 minutes

Any update on this? Still taking ages to save changes
Tristan Beasley commented
Still really slow in West Europe, taken an hour so far to apply configuration changes to a Virtual Network Gateway, in the meantime it's down and unusable for 50 staff...

IT is July now and no improvement. Way too slow now.
It takes 20 minutes in germancloud :(
Andres Barcenas commented
Any updates on these improvements?
