[Satellite6] goferd various issues when using different proton library

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • updated some *proton* packages from upstream to some Content Hosts
  • since then, various issues with goferd / katello-agent happen:
    • frequent or permanent connection drops and/or inability to establish a connection to qdrouterd
    • creating extra TCP connections to qdrouterd (until a limit on the router is reached, what affects the qdrouterd stability)
    • high memory consumption of goferd


  • Red Hat Satellite 6
  • katello-agent installed on Content Hosts
    • some or many such Content Hosts have either *proton* package from (Fedora or EPEL) upstream - but not from Red Hat
    • particular packages (as required by goferd): python-gofer-proton, qpid-proton-c, python-qpid-proton
