To preface, I am in the testing phase with a new Foreman/Katello installation that is being built to replace our Spacewalk server.
I am running Foreman version 2.5.4 w/Katello version 4.1
Thus far, I have enrolled a few test machines and most things are working as expected. The documentation has been intuitive and the forums here have been very helpful.
However I am having one issue that I am concerned my users will not appreciate
Yum commands such as “yum repolist” or “yum install [randompackage]” are very slow
They can take upwards of two minutes, all while hanging on the message “Updating Subscription Management Repositories”
Any yum command I run freezes and must go through the “Updating Subscription Management Repositories” cycle first
Quicker performance. I am used to Spacewalk’s response time and may be missing something very basic in the configuration here.
If I run yum repolist on a spacewalk enrolled machine, I quickly get a result after pressing enter
If I do the same with a foreman enrolled machine, it takes two minutes
