10 second delay with application_role

I’ve a secondary frontend server that is configured with application_role, running gitlab-rails and puma. It connects to another server that runs postgresql, redis, gitaly, etc.

Web requests on the secondary frontend server has a delay of around 10 seconds before the page is visible. It’s a very small test deployment with only a few very small repositories and wiki pages, so 10 seconds is much too long.

There must be a problem. Seeing if anyone can help.

I have some logs, but don’t know what to post.
