Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1286876
Explanation of Capsule Server scaling is very confusing and seemingly contradictory

Section Number and Name: 7.1. RED HAT SATELLITE CAPSULE SERVER SCALABILITY
Describe the issue: The numerical data presented in the entire section, and accompanying text, is confusing and seemingly contradictory. For example, it states "The Capsule Server has a concurrency limitations of 100 concurrent puppet agents running at any single point in time. Running more than 100 concurrent puppet agents will result in a 503 HTTP error." Later in the same paragraph it states "...a Capsule Server with four CPUs can expect a maximum of 1250-1600 puppet clients with a moderate workload of 10 puppet classes assigned to each puppet client."
Suggestions for improvement:
Restructure the text and numerical data so that it is clear and easily understood. This will require SME assistance as it's critical the data is correct.

i think we need to find out the passenger limits for customer running large environments
Current limit is set to 100.
Syntax passenger_max_request_queue_size integer;
Default passenger_max_request_queue_size 100;
Then have this figure adjusted based on cpu/memory/hosts requirements
I can see two sections, that this information needs to be updated on.
In installation doc
--> 7.1 and 1.4.7
