The RHSM Download Plug-in tool and RHSM Download Cacher have been updated with the following enhancements:
Blacklist repository functionality
This enhancement for the RHSM Download Plug-in blocks for the Red Hat repositories that are not needed for patching. The functionality works around a limitation in how the BESServer processes downloads, which may result in unnecessary errors being logged, and a longer processing time of the download plug-in.
Logging level functionality for the RHSM Download Cacher log
Users can now set the logging levels to determine the amount of detail that is written to the RHSM Download Cacher log.
