- Previously, the rhn-client-tools code called by the sosreport utility on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 terminated unexpectedly with a traceback. The bug has been fixed and and the information about hardware is now correctly gathered by sosreport.
- Previously, a machine with many CPUs could report large value for idle time for all its processors. Consequently, the idle time value did not fit into XML-RPC's integer limits and running the rhn_check command on a problematic machine resulted in a traceback error. The bug has been fixed and rhn_check in the problematic scenarios works now correctly.
- Previously, the rhn-profile-sync utility terminated unexpectedly with a traceback when an older version of the rhn-virtualization-host package was installed on the machine. The bug has been fixed by requiring a newer version of rhn-virtualization-host.
- The RHN Proxy did not work properly if separated from a parent by a slow enough network. Consequently, users who attempted to download larger repodata files and RPMs experienced timeouts. This update changes both RHN Proxy and Red Hat Enterprise Linux RHN Client to allow all communications to obey a configured timeout value for connections.
- While Satellite 5.3.0 now has the ability to get the number of CPUs via an API call, there was no function to obtain the number of sockets from the registered systems. This update adds a function to get the number of physical CPU sockets in a managed system from Satellite via an API call.
