Error description

  • When performing multiple Subscribe actions using the same
    transport in a test, the test takes a long time to complete.
    
    STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
    
    1. Create a test with an iterator.
    2. Place a File Subscribe inside the loop.
    3. Run the test.
    
    EXPECTED RESULTS:
    
    Rapid test execution.
    
    ACTUAL RESULTS:
    
    Each iteration takes several seconds.
    
    
    WORKAROUND:
    
    Set the Poll interval on the Subscribe action to the minimum 1
    second.
    The default is 10 seconds.
