If a user has lots of guest pools (for example, if there are lots of guests running on hypervisors), manifest import can take a long time.
Specifically, the "ImportProducts" step can take quite a while. For a Satellite with 3300 pools, this step can take 3.5 hours. It appears that during manifest import, all of the pools are reindexed. This happens one pool at a time, and each pool take a couple of seconds which leads to this issue.
The ImportProducts step in manifest import operation takes over 3 hrs on a database with over 3000 guest pools.
