Description Riaan van Niekerk 2007-01-25 07:46:01 EST
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.
Comment 2 Riaan van Niekerk 2007-09-11 10:54:44 EDT
This same insufficient 6 GB per channel is still present in the RHN Satellite 
5.0 documentation:

Comment 4 Riaan van Niekerk 2009-09-30 05:20:08 EDT
I see this is fixed in the latest version
