Puppet Enterprise seems to consume a lot of memory
Running Puppet Enterprise 2015.2.3 as puppet master on our linux server we noticed that it consumes a lot of memory. We have installed this machine with 12GByte of memory, but puppet fills most of it. In our test environment where we evaluatie puppet we ran easily in 4GByte of memory. Both configurations only use 2 puppet agents on Windows. What can be our problem? We have installed puppet enterprise 2015 out of the box. Thanks for your feedback, Kor Molenmaker MARIN, the Netherlands.
