Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 497458
Cloning 500 errata into a channel causes extreme server load and eventual 500/ISE
Last modified: 2014-05-09 06:38:17 EDT
* Create a clone of RHEL4-AS with NO ERRATA (gold)
* Clone 500 errata to this channel.
* Watch as server load hits 4-5 and http request times out after 5 minutes.
* cry because you have to solve a bug wrt cloning errata.
Possible dupe of bug 492248. Can you confirm this is same code path you used?
bug 496259 even. The one in comment #1 is a Proxy bug in another tab :)
fixed the ISE, don't think i can fix the server load though. Not without major errata reworking (aka making the errata data structure not suck)
Verified. Satellite-5.3.0-RHEL5-re20090619.0-x86_64 + external db
No ISE. Anyway cloning of 1600 erratas took 5 minutes.
FAILS staged (Satellite-5.3.0-RHEL5-re20090724.0) with updates from Aug 20, 2009
After 2 minutes of cloning 1617 Errata from the RHEL4 AS base channel, I got an ISE:
500 Error - Internal Server Error

On another staged satellite, the page has been "Loading..." for almost an hour.
moving to FAILS_QA
On another staged satellite, the page finally loaded after 56 minutes with 1614 cloned errata. So I was not able to reproduce the error after all. Someone else should also re-test.
We have not addressed this specific bug in over 5 years years. This does not seem to have an active customer case with the bug report either. Closing out as wontfix to clear from backlog.
Please re-open if you disagree and wish further review.
