Have 150k foreman-tasks which might be taking long time to export.

Please backport also this small change: Foreman Issue #18348

Comment 7 Satellite Program 2017-03-06 13:10:03 UTC
Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite 6 since the upstream issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/18348 has been resolved.

Comment 10 Lukas Zapletal 2017-06-28 10:52:15 UTC
As a workaround, I suggest you to review old tasks cleanup configuration, it was broken in 6.2

foreman-rake foreman_tasks:cleanup

See description in 


By default it does not delete ANY tasks which are in error/failed/stuck state, therefore the queue can easily grow fast. In that case provide more aggressive deletion options.

Alternative workaround, delete this block 


from the


file and foreman-debug will be fast again.

This will be fixed in Satellite 6.3 where we only dump SQL data tables which is fast.
