Numerous requests for this from users. It would be cool if we had a way to configure PuppetDB such that nodes get automatically deactivated if we haven’t received a catalog or facts or whatever from them in some user-specified grace period.
This is particularly helpful for users running in environments like EC2, where machines are often ephemeral.
