Description aaleman 2021-04-28 16:27:08 UTC
Description of problem:

When creating many imagestream imports in parallel, they eventually become very slow (more than 15 minutes) even when the import is just from one namespace to the other in the same cluster. This is presumably caused by the controller only having a concurrency of five, we observed that the workqueue_depth for the ImageStreamController goes up to 350.

@Oleg if I remember correctly you wrote a patch that bumped the number of workers, or made it tunable from the operator configuration layer, right? If so, we can likely close this out.

Comment 3 Oleg Bulatov 2021-05-17 10:08:33 UTC
That PR is still open and is part of this BZ.
