    Description

      Facter Version: all (tested in 3.11.0)
      Puppet Server Version: NA
      OS Name/Version: NA

      At current, we offer the ability to blocklist facts based on their grouping 

      https://puppet.com/docs/facter/3.9/configuring_facter.html#facts

       

      Desired Behavior:

       

      **The ability to block individual facts from being collected, I understand we have the PuppetDB blacklist but this is for stopping individual facts from being executed rather than not being stored in PuppetDB

      For more detailed information turn up the server logs by upping the log level in the server's logback.xml

      Relevant sections of configurations files (puppet.conf, hiera.conf, Server's conf.d, defaults/sysconfig)

      For memory issues with server heap dumps are also helpful.
