A few things to look at :
- if you have the database and the web frontend on the same machine , 4 GB to
me sounds very minimal... PostgreSQL will become much quicker if it can cache
more data so you might want to add some RAM (go to 6 or 8 GB and maybe tweak
your PostgreSQL configuration a bit) When we were still running virtual the web
frontend machine had 8 GB and the PostgreSQL VM had 8 GB, both with 2 cores and
things ran fine (granted, with only roughly 70 clients)
- for us OSA became a lot smoother and more stable by switching it's backend
from berkeley DB to SQLite ; I'd recommend this step to everybody using OSA.
See https://www.redhat.com/archives/spacewalk-list/2011-March/msg00048.html on
how to do this.
- you might want to check if the machine is hitting I/O limits ; tools like
vmstat can help a lot
More CPU's doesn't sound like the solution, as only one core is pegged at 100%
; memory, disk I/O and maybe if it's a remote PostgreSQL instance network sound
like more likely candidates.

Subject: [Spacewalk-list] How to improve WUI performance
I have 465 servers in my SW environment, and I keep adding more everyday. When
finished, I'll have nearly a thousand servers in the environment.
My SW server is a virtual RHEL 6.6, SW v2.3. I have four CPU's and four Gigs
of memory allocated to the server.
Whenever I select "Systems" from the main menu a single CPU pegs at 100%, and
it takes several minutes for the page to come up. It appears that
osa-dispatcher is what is using up the CPU. osa-dispatcher is often at 99 to
Is there a way to performance tune SW? Can I configure SW to use all four
CPU's, or should I add additional CPU's, can configure SW to use all assigned
