[Pulp-list] pulp without consumer agents

Hmm, I’m interested in hearing more about the agentless consumer proposal as well.

I recently removed pulp from of all my consumers completely and instead have only the Pulp server. I use puppet to deploy the yum.repos.d files and sslcacert that needs to present on the consumers. I use good old-fashioned ssh to do the yum updates.

I’ve been using pulp for about 2+ years, and I’ve always battled with SSL cert issues (we have a root CA so I was dealing with an intermediary cert for the pulp server which was tricky) as well as message queues (qpid and rabbitmq) always going down either from the messaging server or the consumer/agent itself.  This is not to say it was pulp’s fault, but I felt like it was overkill for only 300ish servers we need to manage.  This new setup we’re using is way simpler and less for me to manage…just a server serving pulp repos.

I recently saw a youtube pulp video that I think was dated Jan 2016, the speaker was from redhat and mentioned in passing that pulp was going to be phasing out consumer agents.  Does anyone know anything more about this?  We are running into problems being allowed to install anything on our servers and it would be handy if we could manage server patching from the pulp server without having to install a consumer agent on the consumers.
