System Requirements

Operating System

Puppet Enterprise 2.0 supports the following systems:

Operating system Version Arch Roles
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6 x86 and x86_64 all roles
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 x86 and x86_64 agent
CentOS 5 and 6 x86 and x86_64 all roles
CentOS 4 x86 and x86_64 agent
Ubuntu LTS 10.04 32- and 64-bit all roles

Hardware

Puppet Enterprise’s hardware requirements depend on the roles a machine performs.

  • The puppet master role should be installed on a robust, dedicated server.
    • Minimum requirements: 2 processor cores, 1 GB RAM, and very accurate timekeeping.
    • Recommended requirements: Physical hardware or Xen or KVM virtual server, with 2-4 processor cores and 4 GB RAM. Performance will vary, but this configuration can generally manage approximately 1,000 agent nodes.
  • The console role should usually be installed on the same server as the puppet master, but can optionally be separated.
    • Minimum requirements: A machine able to handle moderate web traffic and perform processor-intensive background tasks.
  • The cloud provisioner role has very modest requirements.
    • Minimum requirements: A system which provides interactive shell access for trusted users.
  • The puppet agent role has very modest requirements.
    • Minimum requirements: Any hardware able to comfortably run a supported operating system.
