When we issue the command " puppet-backup create --scope=config --name=puppetdb_config.tgz" the backup file is 78GB?

The documentation states : Your PE configuration, including license, classification, and RBAC settings. However, configuration backup does not include Puppet gems or Puppet Server gems.

This environment is less than 100 nodes. What exactly is this backing up? What do I need to do to trim this down a bit?

I figured this out...

I had about 77GB in /opt/puppetlabs/server/data/puppetserver/bucket/*

I cleaned up that folder and not my backup are 1.5GB
