When there are more than two browsers (say users) looking at a job's live view, the third one henceforth will take a noticeable time to load.

steps to reproduce

  1. Go to
  2. Go to All tests, and choose one running job, and open the live view
  3. Open again the live view for the same job 4 times


Somehow the webUI is getting stalled trying to process the 3rd/4th request (Stalling on images mostly)


Check the sub streaming lib/OpenQA/WebAPI/Controller/


Have no more than two live views enabled.

Compared to the other issues we have I am sure you will agree this is low prio. And also I don't consider it a "concrete bug". It's a feature request. I guess multi-viewer mode was never specified properly.

I agree with the priority, but I don't see it as a feature request, the feature is already implemented and works, but also has a problem therefore it's a bug.
