        Hi all,


        Since iOS 10, an internal app has started seeing many downloads slow to a crawl. Across perhaps 100 NSURLSessionData/Download tasks (ranging in size from 200kb to 5Mb) most download in < 1s, but a fair percentage take nearly exactly 30seconds from the NSURLSessionTask state going into .Running to .Completed. That already smells like some sort of timeout.


        There are also a lot of those new networking logs, but as well as log noise, specific stack traces, like:

        If I were to hazard a guess, I'd say a background daemon has crashed, and it takes 30s for a watchdog to notice. I see two other people talking about this log in the forums, but all to do with JavaScript downloads fwiw: 101 Network error and here: Player on TVOS 10 stopped playing a lot of streams


        There are more of these logs than slow downloads, but in the same order of magnitude (eg. for 60 or so 30s downloads there are 90 or so backtraces).


        If the downloads continually failed I'd suspect a disallowed TLS protocol or something, but they all eventually succeed...


        A few things of note with this connection - it's TLS, uses NTLM authentication (I know, I know) and also uses a client-side authentication certificate.


        Next step is a DTS ticket I guess...
