On puppetdb-import puppetdb crashed because it ran out of RAM. Though this is expected behaviour it should log something about it but /var/log/puppetdb/puppetdb.log only contained entries up to the crash, not including the crash / the fact it ran out of memory.

  • Status changed from Unreviewed to Needs More Information

Its weird you didn’t see the Java memory error, I always see it – what OS and version are you on? What exact version of PuppetDB were you using, and what version of the JVM exactly were you using?

  • OS: Debian Wheezy 7.1
  • PuppetDB: 1.3.2[-1puppetlabs1] (as packaged and available in the Puppetlabs APT repository)
