Puppet server scaling and performance tuning
2024-02-05, 16:45–17:10, B.2.015

Puppet server needs enough resources to handle all agent requests in reasonable time.
In platforms with many systems, we usually see scaling by using a load balancer.
But prior scaling you want to do performance tuning first.

This talk will guide you through the different tuning possibilities and will explain scaling setup.
We will talk about VMs, Puppet containers and we will provide an insight on how to scale on big hardware without VM or containers.
