- Red Hat Network
We have repeatedly been told that Red Hat monitors its CDN for erratum delivery. In practice, this does not appear to be the case. The question is why does Red Hat not monitor its CDN and instead makes customers jump through all kinds of hoops attempting to get Red Hat to actually look at their CDN and see the obvious problem with old metadata or missing packages.
The other frustrating aspect is to see Red Hat erratum delivered by CentOS and even Oracle before we can get them via the RHN CDN. It is not a matter of slowness, but the erratum are not available!
You can see these on the RHN hosted console when looking at how auto-applied-errata failed to be applied. If I worked at Red Hat within RHN, I would immediately write this query and create a dashboard.
"How many systems on the CDN have auto-apply-errata checked and failed to install a given errata?" Seeing a very high error rate would raise some sort of internal red flags, one would think.
original rant text:
Just curious why Red Hat does not actively monitor that its CDN is delivering erratum. It is frustrating to consistently see Oracle and now Centos deliver errata faster than Red Hat RHEL RHN does.
