Description Mike McCune 2019-06-30 14:18:33 UTC
Various customer reports indicate that there is a step in the restore process that can take an extraordinarily long period of time for backups containing pulp content.

Anecdotal reports:

"The first ~600GB were fast to recover and restore of the last 100GB is taking already 60 hours."

"Satellite restore 870GB not completed after 6 days"

"It would take forever on restoring the last 100GB of pulp data. (Have around 1.5TB in pulp) and it took maybe four days to complete that part. I did a P2V on 6.2 using the backup and restore method with aroun 1TB of content and it only took a few hours. "
This can be severely business impacting when the Satellite is in a disaster scenario and needing to be brought back online.
