dylanratcliffe/no_cached_catalogs — version 0.1.1 Mar 28th 2016



This module allows you to completely disable catalog caching on disk with the Puppet Agent. By default Puppet will cache the most recent catalog in the client_datadir, in order to disable this, install this module then add the following line to your puppet.conf:

catalog_cache_terminus = none

Or manage the setting in Puppet Code (recommended) using the inifile module

NOTE: As App Orchestration relies on agents being able to run against cached catalogs, using setting the catalog_cache_terminus to none will break App Orchestration.
