[Qgis-developer] Geospackage Slow in QGIS

HI Stefan,

Call from QGIS is here: https://github.com/qgis/QGIS/blob/master/src/providers/ogr/qgsogrfeatureiterator.cpp#L45

GDAL code is here:


My profiler says all the time is in OGRGeoPackageDataSource::Open.

Also a simple check via the command line for the given database:

qlite3 test_parcels.gpkg
sqlite> .timer ON
sqlite> PRAGMA integrity_check;
CPU Time: user 3.384211 sys 0.756047

Hi Jeremy

Is this PRAGMA integrity_check really the bottle neck?
Is it an integrity check on a data type (e.g. integer - its probably actually an integrity check on SRID)?
Can you point to the code?

Yours, Stefan

I've just been using the new implementation of Geopackage in QGIS :) However each map render or feature info is very slow for large database files - even with the new GDAL/OGR Geopackage spatial index support. Each time QGIS renders a new map view or executes a feature info it re-opens the Geopackage file in QgsOgrFeatureIterator via OGROpen, and the Geopackage driver open method runs PRAGMA integrity_check which is very slow (4 secs with my 2GB test file). This integrity check is actually a Geopackage requirement.

How can this be fixed? At the in QGIS or GDAL/OGR level?
