Thanks for the info, Tomas.

I will definitely try this one out! Couldn’t wait for it to be released for CentOS if it really does what the changes you mentioned describe :-)

We would like to have hostgroup of 10.000 hostmembers or even more in one group. We currently split these group into multiple smaller groups with max 1000 members, because adding, modifying or removing a members of a large group (~7k hostmembers) takes around 7 seconds (removing one host from the group alone).

Kind regards,

Hi Dominik,

performance issues are a known problem, there has been some work to
improve the performance with respect to large groups:


These improvements are in FreeIPA 4.2 only, however, which has not been
released for CentOS7 as of now. You may try to play with FreeIPA 4.2 on
Fedora, see
