2016 - Performance Tuning of Satellite 6.1 and Capsules​

Updated -

Red Hat Satellite 6.1 is the second release of a new generation of Systems Management for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) that demonstrates measurable improvements over Red Hat Satellite 5. This document provides basic guidelines and considerations for tuning Red Hat Satellite 6.1 for performance. Many factors drive the performance of a Satellite 6.1 deployment and testing conducted before performing any of the suggested tuning. There is no one-size-fits-all configuration as tunings will vary based on your environmental factors, such as the hardware Satellite 6.1 is deployed on or the complexity of Puppet manifests. It is important to establish a baseline within your environment in order to determine how to scale Satellite 6.1 to meet your needs for life-cycle management of systems.

For the Satellite 6.2 Tuning Guide Please See:




I recommend to increase PassengerStartTimeout to something like 500 or even 900. Starting times of Satellite Server Rails app are slow, processes could get killed easily.

Also Passenger tuning is little bit tricky, this deserves expansion I think. https://www.phusionpassenger.com/library/config/apache/reference/

Sure . Will update this.

We have new one for satellite 6.2 here. https://access.redhat.com/articles/2626101
