Java Question

Apache Http Client slower than browser

Disclaimer: I know that this question has duplicates (one, two, three), BUT:


  • I tried all the answers and it doesn't solve the problem (I searched not only in SO)

  • I provide the full internal log of http client, so experienced users can
    analize and comment it.

  • Those questions are old (more than a year), many things has been changed.






I'm trying to get content from this URL:
https://api.vk.com/method/database.getCountries

Mac OS Chrome browser gets the content in around 70-100 ms (I look at dev-tools Network tab), but my code with apache http client 4.5.2 gets it in 180-200 ms.
Also I have a code with (kevinsawicki-http-request) library, witch gets this page in 70-100 ms (like in browser).
This difference is critical for me, and (I think) for many other devs, who asked similar questions.

My code:

RequestConfig requestConfig = RequestConfig.custom()
.setCookieSpec(CookieSpecs.IGNORE_COOKIES)
.setSocketTimeout(60000)
.setConnectTimeout(5000)
.setConnectionRequestTimeout(5000)
.build();
SocketConfig socketConfig = SocketConfig.custom()
.setSoKeepAlive(false) //true - no differences in request time
.setTcpNoDelay(true)
.build();
PoolingHttpClientConnectionManager connManager = new PoolingHttpClientConnectionManager();
connManager.setMaxTotal(50);
connManager.setDefaultMaxPerRoute(2);

CloseableHttpClient httpClient = HttpClients.custom()
.setDefaultSocketConfig(socketConfig)
.setConnectionManager(connManager)
.setDefaultRequestConfig(requestConfig)
.setUserAgent("Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_11_0) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/54.0.2840.71 Safari/537.36")
.build();

//1
long t11 = System.currentTimeMillis();
try(CloseableHttpResponse response1 = httpClient.execute(new HttpGet("https://api.vk.com/method/database.getCountries"))) {
code1 = response1.getStatusLine().getStatusCode();
}
long t12 = System.currentTimeMillis();
long reqTime1 = t12 - t11;
//2
long t21 = System.currentTimeMillis();
try(CloseableHttpResponse response2 = httpClient.execute(new HttpGet("https://api.vk.com/method/database.getCountries"))) {
code2 = response2.getStatusLine().getStatusCode();
}
long t22 = System.currentTimeMillis();
long reqTime2 = t22 - t21;
//3
long t31 = System.currentTimeMillis();
try(CloseableHttpResponse response3 = httpClient.execute(new HttpGet("https://api.vk.com/method/database.getCountries"))) {
code3 = response3.getStatusLine().getStatusCode();
}
long t32 = System.currentTimeMillis();
long reqTime3 = t32 - t31;

log.trace("reqTime1: {}", reqTime1);
log.trace("reqTime2: {}", reqTime2);
log.trace("reqTime3: {}", reqTime3);


This prints:

reqTime1: 198
reqTime2: 168
reqTime3: 160


(all 3 requests return 200 http code)

I have JVM options:

-Djavax.net.ssl.keyStore=/path/to/my/keyStore.jks
-Djavax.net.ssl.keyStorePassword=my_password
-Dorg.apache.commons.logging.Log=org.apache.commons.logging.impl.SimpleLog
-Dorg.apache.commons.logging.simplelog.showdatetime=true
-Dorg.apache.commons.logging.simplelog.log.org.apache.http=DEBUG
-Dorg.apache.commons.logging.simplelog.log.org.apache.http.wire=ERROR


(vk.com certificate is added in my keyStore.jks)

Here is the internal log of http-client

Of course, the above tests were performed with internal logging turned OFF because it adds additional ~50 ms to each request.

I have read ALL apache http-client site docs thrice, I have no idea where to look and where I have mistake. I hope so much, that some geek can help me increase request speed.

If this is not intentional then the simplest way to make HttpClient faster is by re-using connections (especially when using SSL/TLS transport security).

Always make sure that response content has been fully consumed (by reading from the content stream until end of the stream or by closing the stream).

try(CloseableHttpResponse response1 = httpClient.execute(new HttpGet("https://api.vk.com/method/database.getCountries"))) {
    int code1 = response1.getStatusLine().getStatusCode();
    EntityUtils.consume(response1.getEntity());
}
