Is it possible to install Puppet Enterprise 3.0.0 faster? It installs more then 5 times longer then previous version PE 2.8.1!!

We previously installed PE 2.8.1, on 480MB of RAM and 1 cpu virtual development box. Now we scaled that box to 1.5GB of RAM and 2 cpu and still install time is more then 5 times longer then PE 2.8.1?

It's real pain in development! Is there any way to speed it up?!

installation on master node

  • PE 2.8.1 -> 4:26min
  • PE 3.0.0 -> 17:30min ...

The short answer is that PE3 is simply installing more components (pe-puppetdb, pe-postgresql), so it's probably going to take a little longer to install.

However, we have been working on some performance improvements for the installer, so there's a good chance that things will be faster in the next point release of PE.

Can you post some before and after timing numbers here?

Your PE 2.8.1 system was well below the minimum system requirements at that time. Your PE 3.0.0 system is still only slightly above the current minimum requirements.

Do you see any improvement if you increase the specs to 4 CPUs and 4GB of RAM?
