Puppet 3.8.7 from the puppetlabs repositories on Ubuntu 14.04 takes very long to store state:

Debug: Storing state
Debug: Stored state in 59.73 seconds

What is that state? For what is it required? How do I disable storing state?

I believe it is calculating the last_run_report.yaml and last_run_state.yaml files.. aka just a yaml dump of the statefile. It takes a long time if you are managing a lot of resources. I know I've seen that time explode when I was managing a file directory with lots of children to set their perms with recurse => true.

    Puppet.debug "Storing state" "Creating state file #{Puppet[:statefile]}" unless Puppet::FileSystem.exist?(Puppet[:statefile])

    Puppet::Util.benchmark(:debug, "Stored state") do
      Puppet::Util::Yaml.dump(@@state, Puppet[:statefile])

Thanks a lot. Is there a way to disable it?
