free form search is very slow, not excluding installed packages and applicable errata
Currently the free form search: 'foo' is very slow. it is very fast when specifying the fields (bar=foo). This is due to some fields that are not excluded which should be from the unscoped search

Glad I found this issue, as we're experiencing this slowdown too, and I was going to raise an issue if I didn't find an existing one.
For us, we have just 212 content hosts, and a search for something like "pal*" in order to get a subset of hosts (something you can't do with the field search?) takes around 21s.
As a side note, a similar search in the "All Hosts" page is also pretty slow:
takes around 18s...
