      Some puppet default settings required facter to retrieve the data which
      caused facter to load all external facts that are not used. This can
      slow down puppet if external facts are slow.

      Now, only when performing a lookup command on a remote node, local external facts are not evaluated.

      Description

      When performing a puppet lookup on a remote node, puppet requires some settings that are provided by Facter. When Facter provides the setting, it evaluates all external facts even if it does not need them.

      When running this command puppet should not evaluate all local external facts.
