When running puppet 3.8.7 with ruby version 2.0.0p648 the cpu utilization is spiking on our server for the entire puppet run. It is taking 1 core entirely.

Does anyone have any information of how to lower the cpu utilizaiton?

Puppet 3.8.7 is well past end-of-life. Can you try a more recent version, especially because it uses a more modern ruby version?

You may also want to try setting priority and/or configuring puppet to run under a user account and setting a cpu quota
