Description Russell Dickenson 2015-11-30 20:11:06 EST
Document URL: https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Satellite/6.1/html-single/Installation_Guide/index.html#sect-Red_Hat_Satellite-Installation_Guide-Installing_Red_Hat_Satellite_Capsule_Server-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
