  • Puppet can run in a stand-alone architecture, where each managed node has its own complete copy of configuration info and compiles its own catalog.

  • In this architecture, managed nodes run the Puppet apply application, usually as a scheduled task or cron job.

  • Puppet apply needs access to several sources of configuration data, which it uses to compile a catalog for the node it is managing.

  • Previous versions of Puppet offered a standalone architecture, in which agents compiled their own catalogs using the Puppet apply application. This configuration is no longer recommended , because it's challenging to maintain and secure.  

  • Puppet version 6.7 is configured in an agent-master architecture, in which a master node controls configuration information for a fleet of managed agent nodes.
