Description Justin Sherrill 2014-07-18 00:45:48 UTC
Description of problem:

currently if you install a satellite on systems with a large number of cpus (16, 32, etc..) the number of pulp workers is very large.  In reality we only need around 8 workers max.  So we should default the config file in /etc/defaults/ to 6 or 8 or the cpu count if its lower than 6 or 8

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Install satellite 6
2.  Check the number of workers  ps aux | grep pulp_workers (then divide by 2)

Actual results:
Does not limit itself to any number.

Expected results:
For a large cpu system should limit itself to 6 or 8

Created redmine issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/8266 from this bug

Moving to POST since upstream bug http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/8266 has been closed

Comment 6 Elyézer Rezende 2015-04-07 12:31:23 UTC
Verified on Satellite-6.1.0-RHEL-7-20150406.0

Steps to verify:

1. Installed Satellite
2. Fetched the CPU number
3. Checked the number of pulp workers (decreased 1 because grep matches itself)

Machine 1

# lscpu | grep '^CPU(s):'
CPU(s):                32

# expr $(ps aux | grep -E "reserved_resource_worker-" | wc -l) - 1

Machine 2

# lscpu | grep '^CPU(s):'
CPU(s):                24

# expr $(ps aux | grep -E "reserved_resource_worker-" | wc -l) - 1

To get the real number of pulp workers, the number should be divided by 2 as stated in the bug description, in both cases was 8.

Comment 7 Bryan Kearney 2015-08-11 13:34:24 UTC
This bug is slated to be released with Satellite 6.1.
