Just went from Puppet 3.7.3 to Puppet 4.10.8
I now see my custom facts load twice at the beginning of a Puppet run. I was told in #irc this was an expected behavior, that has been filed many times, but thats just how it is?
Is there a reason for this, or a work around? This really messes up our entire environment as some servers can take up to 6 (sometimes 8 minutes) just to gather facts. These are large storage servers with sometimes 200 luns attached. In addition, some of our 730's and newer 930's have 16-24 ports in them, which are also ran through facter.
This was not an issue for the last 4-5 years, but seems like there is no way around this? Is that a correct statement?
