Asset browser timeout [only for some assets]

Loading assets at startup times out (in Isaac 2022.2.0), and it appears to slow the simulator - I have to wait several minutes after starting the app before I can load my code, or any of the demos, without crashing. The crash doesn’t happen if I wait for all the timeout messages to finish. The asset browser then looks like this:

Here are the timeout errors.

I am using Mozilla as my default browser and there is connection to the internet (the speed tests look fine)

Hi
would you provide some info about your system. Are you running locally?

Running locally, Ubuntu 20, 2xRTX3080 GPUs, connected to the internet via ethernet within eduroam but this was never an issue with past versions of IsaacSim.

Hi. There could be random issues accessing our public S3 bucket. You can try disabling the extension at the /apps/omni.isaac.sim.base.kit file in the Isaac Sim package.

Remove the line below to disable the Isaac Asset browser extension.

“omni.isaac.asset_browser” = {}

You could also remove the folders pulled by the Kit Asset Browser below:

exts.“omni.kit.browser.asset”.folders = [
http://omniverse-content-production.s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/Assets/Vegetation”,
http://omniverse-content-production.s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/Assets/ArchVis/Commercial”,
http://omniverse-content-production.s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/Assets/ArchVis/Industrial”,
http://omniverse-content-production.s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/Assets/ArchVis/Residential”,
http://omniverse-content-production.s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/Assets/DigitalTwin/Assets/Warehouse/Equipment”,
http://omniverse-content-production.s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/Assets/DigitalTwin/Assets/Warehouse/Safety”,
http://omniverse-content-production.s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/Assets/DigitalTwin/Assets/Warehouse/Shipping”,
http://omniverse-content-production.s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/Assets/DigitalTwin/Assets/Warehouse/Storage”,
]

These warnings and errors are usually fine and can be ignored.
