RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Fixed In Version: nss-pem-1.0.3-5.el7_6.1
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: libcurl started to use the PK11_CreateManagedGenericObject() function from NSS (Network Security Services) in RHEL-7.6 to reduce memory consumption while loading certificates from files. Consequence: This caused a severe performance regression in nss-pem because an internal array of pointers to internal objects started to grow per each load of a certificate. As the array is looked up sequentially, it resulted in excessive CPU usage and unacceptable delays in libcurl connections over TLS. Fix: The internal array has been replaced by a linked list, which allows to remove arbitrary nodes in a constant amount of time. Result: PK11_CreateManagedGenericObject() can now be used without any measurable performance penalty.
