I have a single server with co-locating puppet master & agent

Ubuntu 12.04.2 , Puppet 3.2.1

puppetmasterd puppetd daemons are running

/etc/puppet/manifests/site.pp defines a target f5 device to configure

i assume puppet creates logs indicating if/how the manifest was applied ?

where can i view these logs , or otherwise monitor what puppet is doing ?

By default, puppet will log to syslog, in /var/log/puppet (open source) or /var/log/pe-puppet (Puppet Enterprise).

You can change this by specifying a logdir in your puppet.conf

As Ancillas mentioned, running puppet agent or master with --test and --debug will generate more verbose output, and will log to the console as well as syslog.

Call puppet with --test and --debug to see detailed console output.
