Could not create PID file
Every 10 seconds the following error is logged on all the the agents:
Puppet (err): Could not run: Could not create PID file: /var/lib/puppet/run/agent.pid
The scheduled runs still proceed successfully at their
runinterval, but I'd still like to fix this. The log files are exploding in size.
How can I begin to troubleshoot this issue?
This is a typical agent configuration:
architecture => x86_64 facterversion => 2.1.0 puppetversion => 3.6.2 rubysitedir => /Library/Ruby/Site/1.8 rubyversion => 1.8.7 sp_cpu_type => Intel Core i5 sp_kernel_version => Darwin 12.5.0 sp_number_processors => 4 sp_os_version => OS X 10.8.5 (12F45) sp_physical_memory => 8 GB
