Implications of stopping puppetserver.service

The pupperserver service takes 1G memory on my dev VM which, since I am using ansible and never puppet, can cause issues. Can someone knowledgeable describe what features would be impacted by stopping puppetserver.service and/or puppet.service? Thanks!

The implications are normally that you can’t import puppet classes. Normally not a big problem. You might even want to rerun the installer so it doesn’t expose puppet server and puppet ca as a smart proxy feature. I don’t know what would happen with the installer if you’d fully disable puppet but just having it installed and not running should be an option.

On the katello side that means that can’t publish a content view with puppet modules. You’ll get an error if the puppet master is down if you try.
