Description of problem:
The Satellite dashboard will auto-reload by default. I'm not aware of any users that monitor the dashboard in a way that's helped by auto-reload, and the reload can use a lot of system resources if the widgets are doing intense SQL.
I've even seen cases where the auto-reload has taken the Satellite down. This can happen if a user has a large number of systems, and a widget runs SQL that takes longer than 60 seconds to run. This can result in a "stacking" effect where more queries are coming in than can be cleared, and the Satellite will eventually become unresponsive.
It would be better if auto-reload was either disabled by default or removed entirely. This would provide a better experience for users with lots of systems, since they would not need to disable the auto-reload to regain some performance headroom on the Satellite.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 6.4.1
Expected behavior: dashboard page does not auto-reload if user's browser is on the dashboard page
Actual behavior: dashboard page auto-reloads
Created redmine issue https://projects.theforeman.org/issues/25637 from this bug
Upstream bug assigned to email@example.com
Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite 6 since the upstream issue https://projects.theforeman.org/issues/25637 has been resolved.
This has been set to POST for 4+ months, do we have an idea of when this will get released?
