Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 834036
Inconsistency in sync status view via sync mgmt and Dashboard sync overview for very large repos
Last modified: 2014-03-18 13:38:35 EDT
Description of problem:
There is inconsistency between what sync status view is via
Sync Management and
Dashboard Sync Overview.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
observed with 1.0.1
Try syncing large repos and towards the end of the sync, we can observe this
Steps to Reproduce:
1. sync large repos like http://download.devel.redhat.com/released/F-15/GOLD/Everything/x86_64/os/
DashBoard Sync Overview shows, the sync has completed "100%", But
Sync Mgmt does not show, the status as "Sync Complete"
From the above 2 different states, I feel there is some inconsistency for the state of syncs for very large repos.
I will be attaching the screen-shots shortly.

The below comment is from Ivan Necas.
The problem is the progress shows the ratio of downloaded/all packages. But it doesn't include the time required:
1. for calculating metadata
2. removing orphaned packages.
Both actions take quite a lot of time (I know that calculating metadata for large repo can take 2+ hours. The important thing is that it finished at the end and doesn't get canceled (what this BZ is about). There are already some activities on the Pulp side to improve generating manifests: right now it's using createrepo utility, that doesn't provide the progress information. I don't thing this issues are worth z-stream.
getting rid of 6.0.0 version since that doesn't exist
