Hi to all,

I feel overpass API is very very slow.


I was setup in my system, but still very slow in my local server too. Any suggestion to improve speed & performance ?

Please clarify what do you want your query to return.

That query returns a lot of data (9+ MB). What is your goal? Maybe try with a smaller around radius?

@RM87: I want to get all streets from a region/radius. If i get from node only, i got very few data only. So I want to retrieve ways too from that region (from ways also i can get some living streets).

@ivanatora: Yes. If i give around 500 meter, then its working little bit better. But I need to get all streets in a small town or around 5kms.

Your current query returns all ways within 5km radius + nodes tagged addr:street within 5km radius.

This query would get you only the streets resulting in ~2MB of data.
