Satellite 5.2 - general slowness / unresponsiveness

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • general slowness / unresponsiveness, especially for system registration and on web UI (such as configuration management pages)
  • nearly every time navigating to different sections of the satellite server website, very long delay
  • "top" command shows high resource usage by tomcat during this delay

  • Satellite server takes time to react, some actions end up with error pages

  • any web UI page having to do with config management loads especially slowly
  • System registration times out or takes a long time

  • Errors in /var/log/tomcat5/catalina.out logs, such as:
