My upgrade is processing all hosts at rate of about 1-2 hosts per second, which gives quite long upgrade time for decently sized Satellite 6, I was on a host with thousand dummy hosts created. Server is baremetal ex-workstation and there is no load except rake, java and postgres (but it's not utilizing resources fully). It has 11k hosts with 125k of fact values.
We should run such rake tasks in parallel. It's not much work to run this in a threadpool or via channels, we already have ruby-concurrent gem. I'd expect huge speedup as this is mostly IO-bound operation (network, database).

The Satellite Team is attempting to provide an accurate backlog of bugzilla requests which we feel will be resolved in the next few releases. We do not believe this bugzilla will meet that criteria, and have plans to close it out in 1 month. This is not a reflection on the validity of the request, but a reflection of the many priorities for the product. If you have any concerns about this, feel free to contact Red Hat Technical Support or your account team. If we do not hear from you, we will close this bug out. Thank you.
Thank you for your interest in Satellite 6. We have evaluated this request, and while we recognize that it is a valid request, we do not expect this to be implemented in the product in the foreseeable future. This is due to other priorities for the product, and not a reflection on the request itself. We are therefore closing this out as WONTFIX. If you have any concerns about this, please do not reopen. Instead, feel free to contact Red Hat Technical Support. Thank you.
