[Satellite6] katello agent task fails when disk is full on the Content Host

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • having a Content Host registered to Satellite6 / Capsule
  • goferd as the katello agent is running
  • an attempt to execute a goferd task (like package/errata install, package remove, capsule synchronize) to this Content Host fails
  • checking health status of the Content Host:
    • it has no free disk space (under / or under /var)
    • it might have no established TCP connection to qdrouterd on Satellite/Capsule (to port 5647)
    • goferd process consumes 100% CPU

Why the task failed? Is it affected by disk full?


  • Red Hat Satellite 6
  • gofer-2.6
