FAQ
Hi community,
in a testing PE installation I see each agent maintains a persistent
collection to ActiveMQ process in master server, to be used by mcollective
in a push (vs pull) scheme.

As it's not so sure that one master is sending lots of petitions to agents,
which are the advantages of this schema instead of non-persistent
connections, specially for the case that there are lots of agents? (well,
maybe this is a question more for ActiveMQ than Puppet, but...)

Could anyone tell about the hardware (mainly RAM) for the master server
(with ActiveMQ) supporting 500 or 1000 Puppet agents?

   Thanks a lot in advance

    Those connections don't take much in the way of resources on the ActiveMQ server
    (you might need to up the number of open files the activemq process is
    able to access).

    I'm not sure what you mean about non-persistent connections; are you
    talking about
    agents periodically connecting to check? i'd expect the continual
    connection setup/teardown
    to put more load on the MQ server that 1000 or so idle connections
    (with maybe the occasional
    keepalive). STOMP is pretty lightweight.
