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] [--help] [-v|--verbose] [--version]


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


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 for the full list of acceptable parameters. A commented list of all configuration options can also be generated by running puppet queue with '--genconfig'.


Enable full debugging.
