what  version of yum and fedora/rhel/whatever is that? For a distro release upgrade of f7 to f8, for example, we’re seeing 400MB DURING the transaction.

For a simple depsolve only loading the f8 + updates + livna ‘primary’ metadata the footprint is 125MB

loading primary + filelists is 200-300MB, depending on if it needs it all

for most transaction primary is all you need so the range I anticipate for f7 and f8 runs of yum tends to be around 200-250MB.

If you’re using yum older than, say, fc6, I’d suggest trying out a recent version with the databases generated reposide using createrepo -d.

huge speed differences.
