Can't confirm. Works nicely here:

This is odd, the message finally shows up after I complete the form multiple times, or if I wait a few minutes! There is definitely something up with this instance of Node Red on my Pi. I test just sitting here watching it, and the two forum inputs I completed, just showed up in the message node output in the debug window. More than 5 minutes after I input the information!

Sounds like the PI is "loaded"

Check htop or top

Top only shows a maximum of about 11%, but.... it is not responding right, pauses between keystrokes in SSH. So something is off, interesting that NR via browser gave no clue this Pi is acting up. I could edit and run flows seemly fine. It was only when I created a form, the issue appeared via NR editor.

Going to re-image the SD card. See if that cleans up the issue. I got all the 'fun' issues it seems. LOL

Found it... get this... even though the network cost metric for WiFi is 600 and ethernet is 100, the Pi is deciding to given priority or preference to using WiFi routing packets. That should not be happening with the current metric setup. No bonding or teaming, nothing to suggest that WiFi should be used over ethernet. But the Pi or Pi OS is using WiFi over ethernet on this specific Pi. And it just so happens my WiFi is fairly busy, hence the direct console is snappy but SSH (when over WiFi) is inconsistent speed wise.

Are you sure the ethernet connection is working and reliable? I had a similar problem with an ethernet connector not fully plugged in. It was using the ethernet connection, but it kept dropping out, or being unreliable, so the net effect was exactly as you describe. Try disabling wifi and make sure it does then work well.

Good question, I did validate the ethernet connectivity. But I think the root cause was a screwed up SD card image, in that I had been hammering many changes to the OS over a long period of time, countless changes, installs and uninstalls, etc. I also had been testing WiFi drivers pre-release stuff helping some friends on github gear up for a major wifi driver release this month. So there are so many ways the network stack could have gotten tweaked, I can't say exactly why the metrics would be off or seemly ignored, or not honored. But the ethernet was stable and metric was 100, where wifi was 600. Once I re-imaged the SD with my standing template, reinstalled NR, the odd issue was squashed. Like I said, I get all the weird issues! LOL.
