Processing step taking a long time

Processing of my deployment is taking a looong time. Here are the last steps from the deploy log:

3:55:10 PM: Starting to deploy site from ‘public’

3:55:10 PM: Creating deploy tree

3:55:10 PM: 40 new files to upload

3:55:10 PM: 0 new functions to upload

3:55:15 PM: Starting post processing

3:56:12 PM: Finished processing build request in 3m6.154161658s

Two things are happening during post-processing:

  1. Netlify auto-detects <form> tags which is used to catch all form submit (Can be disabled upon request)
  2. Checks for internal links (No way to disable this)

You can read more about this here: Completely disabling post-processing of deploys

Hi zltnvrs,

No forms, no internal links (those starting with #, I assume you mean) were in the article. Luke cancelled the deploy, and when I kicked it off again a couple hours later, went off without a hitch.

What about external links? Could it be that a server was down somewhere? I also had a link to another netlify url; would that count as internal?

Anyhow, all better now. Thanks again for the timely response.
