RFE: Sat6 Storage Placement and Monitoring

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • On satellite 6, everything is in /var - a system directory. End user should be able to state where katello should look to and use for storage. Filling up /var brakes the OS.
  • Discussion: End user will have a better idea of their infrastructure. It might make more sense for them to put their repositories on a slower or bigger nfs mount than used for the OS. This is a very big solution.
    Symlinks away are a hack begging to be broken during an update.
    Further, since katello is such a large consumer storage resources, it would be good to have a view in the app (cli & gui) of how much key parts of katello is consuming.

  • RFE request :-
    1. During install, have switches to set a different base directory.
    2. In the gui, under monitor add, storage where the end user can see what part of the solution is consuming the most space to help administrator to provide timely and sufficient resources.
