Satellite 6 backend system Pulp uses MongoDB database for storing repository metadata. As more and more data files are added by MongoDB, total database size grows from default 3 gigabytes up to tens or hundreds of gigabytes. Data is fragmented and promotion or publishing speed decreases.
This can be improved by bringing Satellite 6 instance down and performing MongoDB maintenance operation called "database repair". Our numbers show that the size of database decreases drastically (around 50 %) and promote (or publish) operations are faster by 60-80 %.
