Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 224357
system requirement of "6 GB storage per channel" too low to store "mature" channels
Last modified: 2014-08-04 18:17:15 EDT
The system requirements for Satellite mention "6 GB storage per channel, in the
/var/satellite/ directory by default but configurable at install"
This is completely insufficient to store the packages of current RHEL 3 / RHEL 4
channels. e.g. the channel dump for RHEL 4 x86_64 is 30 ISOs (including
incremental dumps), 18 GB. I have no reason to believe that once this data is
imported to /var/satellite, it will use any less.
I would recommend a more generous estimate of 15 to 20 GB per channel
Moving Bugs to John Ha and assigning.
Re-prioritization meeting on June 20, 7PM EST.
This same insufficient 6 GB per channel is still present in the RHN Satellite
Removing automation notification
I see this is fixed in the latest version
