puppet-queue - Deprecated queuing daemon for asynchronous storeconfigs


Retrieves serialized storeconfigs records from a queue and processes them in order. THIS FEATURE IS DEPRECATED; use PuppetDB instead.


puppet queue [-d|--debug] [-v|--verbose]


This application runs as a daemon and processes storeconfigs data, retrieving the data from a stomp server message queue and writing it to a database. It was once necessary as a workaround for the poor performance of ActiveRecord-based storeconfigs, but has been supplanted by the PuppetDB service, which gives better performance with less complexity.

For more information, see the PuppetDB documentation at http://docs.puppetlabs.com/puppetdb/latest


Note that any setting that's valid in the configuration file is also a valid long argument. For example, 'server' is a valid setting, so you can specify '--server servername' as an argument.

See the configuration file documentation at http://docs.puppetlabs.com/puppet/latest/reference/configuration.html for the full list of acceptable parameters. A commented list of all configuration options can also be generated by running puppet queue with '--genconfig'.
