This is how Puppet works:

  • The Puppet Agent sends the Facts to the Puppet Master. Facts are basically key/value data pair that represents some aspect of Slave state, such as its IP address, up-time, operating system, or whether it’s a virtual machine. 
  • Puppet Master uses the facts to compile a Catalog that defines how the Slave should be configured. Catalogis a document that describes the desired state for each resource that Puppet Master manages on a Slave.
  • Puppet Slave reports back to Master indicating that Configuration is complete, which is visible in the Puppet dashboard.

Can you please provide a demo on how to setup and create catalogs
Hey @Dev, you don't really have to create chatlogs, they are complied by the master using the facts and then sent to the node.
