Description Chris Duryee 2018-02-22 13:33:26 UTC
Description of problem:

If you have a large number of hostgroups, an unqualified hostgroup search may consume a large amount of memory.

This bug has similar repro steps and symptoms to #1462350. The memory growth as not as severe as it was in 1462350 but can still OOM a system if there are enough passenger processes.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 6.2.14

Comment 1 Tomer Brisker 2018-02-22 16:09:01 UTC
Connecting redmine issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/22642 from this bug

Comment 2 Satellite Program 2018-02-22 17:12:49 UTC
Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite 6 since the upstream issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/22642 has been resolved.

Comment 3 Marek Hulan 2018-02-23 07:21:42 UTC
linking also second bug that does not cause such memory consumption but should be probably applied at the same time

Comment 6 Peter Ondrejka 2018-04-23 11:38:08 UTC
Verified on satellite-6.2.15-1.0.el6sat.noarch, no significant spike recorded when doing an unqualified search on 300+ hostgroups
