      Puppet stops responding on the client. We issue the following:

      $ sudo service puppet restart
      Stopping puppet agent:                                     [  OK  ]
      Starting puppet agent:                                     [  OK  ]

      $ sudo puppet agent --test

      This happens on for remote sites predominantly with 'flakey' but not troublesome connectivity. Happening enough to warrant an issue being raised. It may have been happening in prior releases but we have changed the way we monitor puppet agents now so it could be that we are just seeing it now - we updated from 2.6.16 to 3.4.3.

      I will try to get more detail but generally I can't reproduce and have to wait for it to happen.
