Squid mount point missing in storage requirements
Last modified: 2018-05-17 03:54:01 EDT
Section Number and Name:
2.1. STORAGE REQUIREMENTS AND RECOMMENDATIONS
Describe the issue:
Satellite 6.2 uses Squid backend engine to cache RPM files for "On-demand" repositories. It fills up pretty quickly and since by default it's on root folder (/) the outcome is bad - Satellite 6 stops operating properly.
Suggestions for improvement:
Please document how to setup mountpoint for Squid, provide some info about its sizing and also add configuration for Squid (setting up directory structure for directories - by default the cache is small).
Okay sorry I am closing this, I was wrong. Squid cache is temporary and 10 GB is enough. Pulp then fetches the files into it's own directory and the space can be reclaimed.
Thank you lzap
