Description fabrice salvaire 2018-04-02 10:52:04 UTC
When I start a new KDE session just after a boot sequence on Fedora, Packagekit saturates my DSL network bandwidth (~ 230 ko) during several minutes due to the ratio : data size to download versus the available bandwidth.

This behaviour, like desktop indexing, prevent to use its computer in a comfortable way in the first 10 minutes, which is painful when you need to something quickly, like browsing a web service requiring a reactive data transfer.

PackageKit must have an option to limit and delay the downloading for those who do not have a fast connection.
