Description Chris Duryee 2018-01-25 14:59:33 UTC
Description of problem:

If you run 'hammer ping' on a busy system, foreman-tasks may show as being dead if it is busy processing lots of tasks. This can result in confusion.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 6.2.13

How reproducible: intermittent

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a lot of tasks, for example lots of package profile uploads
2. check hammer ping frequently

Actual results: hammer ping will occasionally time out after 2 seconds and show 'FAIL' for foreman-tasks

Expected results: hammer ping only fails for foreman-tasks if something requires user intervention.

Additional info: This might be similar to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1420651 but I am not sure if it's the same root cause.
