A big performance regression with content syncs to content proxies was reported in the community:

Upstream there’s no issue (that I know of), but Red Hat is tracking it as 2245930 – Capsule slowdown from 10 minutes to 2 hours and is being investigated. It appears to be a difference in PostgreSQL 12 (as used by Foreman) and PostgreSQL 13 (as used by Pulp). Patches that rewrite the DB query to work well on both are being tested.
