FAQ
Hi

I am running Puppet version 2.7.18-5 with around ~ 100 nodes syncing with
the server with the defaults of half an hour. Is it normal for the
puppetmaster service to take around ~ *3GB* of RAM.

    you should use Passenger to run the Puppet Master in production

    I found 2.7 had a memory leak(s). If you wish to run as web brick I'd
    suggest restarting on a daily basis.

    I haven't ran 3.x as web brick so I'm unsure if it's still a problem,
    running puppet master with apache phusion has solved a lot of those
    problems for me.
