[RFE] Use symbolic links instead of copying container image layers
Last modified: 2016-10-26 13:54:52 EDT
Description of problem:
Currently Satellite6 synchronize entire container image repositories and use copies for each content view and lifecycle environment combination:
[root@inf60 ~]# du -sh /var/lib/pulp/nodes/published/https/repos/*rhel-base
Since container image repositories are quite big from a storage consumption perspective this leads to an unnecessary huge storage consumption if many container image repos and content views are used.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Sync a container image repository. Add it to one or more content views and promote them. Verify disk usage inside pulp.
Steps to Reproduce:
Repositories are copied.
Repositories are linked only.
Moving 6.2 bugs out to sat-backlog.
Closing this out, as it is resolved in 6.2.
