Description of problem:
The bulk action to "Manage Repository Sets" is slow at scale
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat Satellite 6.3.1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select a large number of Content Hosts (WebUI -> "Content" -> "Content Hosts"
2. "Select Action" -> "Manage Repository Sets"
3. Select a repo and either "Override to Enabled" or "Override to Disabled"
Task took days to complete
Hoping for a much quicker turnaround to set the override of a repo for the whole environment.
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.
Going to reword this bug to include all host bulk actions which are generally slow and fail to perform at scale. Will be attaching additional cases to this bug.
Bulk host delete and Bulk host subscription assignment also see similar issues at scale where they take hours to perform action against sub-1000 hosts.
Upon review of our valid but aging backlog the Satellite Team has concluded that this Bugzilla does not meet the criteria for a resolution in the near term, and are planning to close in one month's time. If you have any concerns about this, please contact your Red Hat Account team. Thank you.
There have been various performance and scale related fixes in Foreman Tasks subsystem's ability to handle bulk operations.
With Satellite 6.8 we are able to process bulk host operations on low-end hardware (32G RAM, 8 core, magnetic disks) a rate of roughly 180 host actions per minute.
This would allow processing of 50,000 host actions in roughly ~4-5 hours which is an improvement from prior performance of 24 hours or more.
With this, we are going to close this out as working within our expectations in the current release. If you are still experiencing extreme times in completing bulk operations against hosts in Satellite, feel free to re-open.
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 your Red Hat Account Team. Thank you.
