Adding rules is slow through the API

I'm using the R80.10 management API to add firewall rules with the mgmt_cli tool. First I login, obtain the sessionid and then create firewall rules using the "add access-rule" command. Finally, the changes are published. For a couple of rules this works fine, but 200 rules takes 16 minutes. I add the rules using position "bottom", I would expect this to be nearly instant. I only publish at the end.


The mgmt is R80.10 running on a VM, but on a 3150 it isn't any faster.


Any tips to speed this up?
