I see that line in the agent node's log. Is that the time taken by the Puppet Master to compile the manifests into a catalog? Or is that the rime taken by the agent to "apply" the catalog on the node?

More specifically, I want to determine the exact time taken by the puppet master to compile the catalog for a given node? Is that logged somewhere?

That notice is how long the agent took to execute, or "apply", the changes in the compiled config.

The puppet master log will have a record of how long it took to compile the actual catalog. An example from my log looks like:

Compiled catalog for **server** in environment **environment** in 2.91 seconds

I pulled out my server name and environment, but your log will obviously have the actual names.
