What is the nature and description of the request?
currently the spacewalk-debug portion of the sosreport command is set to time out after 300 seconds. this poses an issue for satellite servers that have a large amount of data to generate with the spacewalk-debug. we would like to increase this timeout
Why does the customer need this? (List the business requirements here)
it would make supporting our customers that much easier (also, the customers are generally uneasy when they see the sosreport throw a timeout error)
How would the customer like to achieve this? (List the functional requirements here)
mmello++ has written an upstream patch for this enhancement: https://github.com/spacewalkproject/spacewalk/pull/532
For each functional requirement listed, specify how Red Hat and the customer can test to confirm the requirement is successfully implemented.
we have successfully reproduced the issues on internal servers, so we can test on the same when the patch is backported
List any affected packages or components.
Would the customer be able to assist in testing this functionality if implemented?
my apologies, upstream patch is here:
