Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1302388
[RFE] Support for caching-only content Capsules
Last modified: 2018-05-17 01:58:14 EDT
Description of problem:
As a user of Satellite 6, I would like the ability to have a 'lightweight' version of the Satellite capsule. I have remote sites with limited resources and little disk space. I'd like to deploy a capsule there with all the other features (DNS, DHCP, TFTP, Templates, etc) BUT proxy all content related items (RPMs, etc) back to the Satellite itself.
Moving 6.2 bugs out to sat-backlog.
Created redmine issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/17421 from this bug
The Pulp upstream bug status is at NEW. Updating the external tracker on this bug.
The Pulp upstream bug priority is at Normal. Updating the external tracker on this bug.
For this idea of "lightweight", do you mean:
a) lightweight storage (no RPMs/content stored on the Capsule)
b) lightweight software (no Pulp/mongodb running on the Capsule)

In a perfect world c) both (since that is one less service to manage, one less DB to backup, etc), but at a minimum a).
Especially if a) is a new download policy in Pulp. Then the user can switch to/from any other policy (such as immediate or on-demand) to proxy-only.
