2017 - Performance & Scale Tuning of Satellite 6.2 and Capsules

Updated -

Red Hat Satellite 6.2 is the third 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 6.2 for performance & Scale. Many factors drive the performance & Scale of a Satellite 6.2 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 6.2 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 6.2 to meet your needs for life-cycle management of systems.



Is there an updated version for 6.2.5? Or actually any of the 6.2.x releases, has anything changed? Are all the changes still valid?

This is updated one for 6.2.8

Currently many of the customisations are overwritten when the installer is run during upgrades. It would be useful that the next version of the document suggested how to add these customisations to file /etc/foreman-installer/custom-hiera.yaml so they are persisted across upgrades (as per article Satellite 6.2 Feature Overview: Applying Custom Configuration via the installer).

Sure. we will make sure to add this. Feel free to open github issue for any RFE https://github.com/redhat-performance/satellite-tune/issues/23

For future reference - here's the 6.3 version: https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_satellite/6.3/pdf/tuning_red_hat_satellite/Red_Hat_Satellite-6.3-Tuning_Red_Hat_Satellite-en-US.pdf

Hello, html version https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_satellite/6.3/html/tuning_red_hat_satellite/

We should retire this article in favour of Satellite 6: performance tuning to which I have just added a link to Satellite 6.3 Tuning Red Hat Satellite
