    Description

      Despite ACE being mentioned in some of the PE docs:

      https://puppet.com/docs/pe/2021.2/what_gets_installed_and_where.html

      https://puppet.com/docs/pe/2021.2/component_versions_in_recent_pe_releases.html

      It isn't actually documented anywhere. Professional Services and Support (let alone customers) can't be expected to be able to troubleshoot and performance time components that have no available documentation

       

      For example there a tuneable setting called "concurrency" that is presumably related to performance tuning but is not documented anywhere. I have raised an issue in the repo about the lack of documentation: https://github.com/puppetlabs/ace/issues/98 However since this is a component of PE it should also be documented in the official docs, as well as the repo.

       

      Documentation should cover, at a minimum:

      • What is the component for? What does it do? (In more detail than "provides agentless executions services for tasks and catalogs to Puppet Enterprise")
      • How does this component communicate? What ports? What protocols?
      • How does this component scale? What resources does it use? How can these resource be tuned?
      • How is this component affected by DR?
