Description Pavel Moravec 2018-03-12 16:07:06 UTC
Description of problem:
GET requests like


takes above 2minutes at a customer, flooding passenger queue of Satellite. Running the queries on an idle candlepin, it takes 1m13s and postgres is full of  long-running statements like:

2018-03-12 11:15:15 EDT LOG:  duration: 369.689 ms  execute <unnamed>: select cp_consumer.id from cp_consumer inner join cp_consumer_facts on cp_consumer.id = cp_consumer_facts.cp_consumer_id where cp_consumer_facts.mapkey = 'virt.uuid' and lower(cp_consumer_facts.element) in ($1, $2) and cp_consumer.owner_id = $3 order by cp_consumer.updated desc

(cp_consumer having 8k records, cp_consumer_facts having 1M records)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Sat 6.2.12

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. (no idea of generic reproducer, just on the customer data we have)
2. time curl -u admin:admin -ks https://localhost:8443/candlepin/consumers/145b68c1-8d5a-480b-9e06-d1bd042188da/guests > out.txt

Actual results:
takes over 1 minute

Expected results:
takes several seconds ideally

Additional info:
candlepin postgres dump will be provided

Comment 4 Pavel Moravec 2018-03-14 11:00:54 UTC
workaround is in adding an index, per KCS 3379731

Comment 8 Pavel Moravec 2018-05-29 11:22:31 UTC
Different reproducer:

run more requests in parallel such that some such requests are against the same type of URI ( consumer/*/guests ).

Running one such request on idle candlepin, it took 8-10s to complete. Running it concurrently with some other / random requests (max 10 concurrently run), it took up to even 160s to complete it.

So another use case is to run the guest request with some other requests in parallel.
