    Description

      Puppet server will always use log_level debug and then rely on logback to filter unwanted messages. This is really bad design. Puppet generates a very large amount of output in debug mode. As an example, all lookups (hiera calls and APL included) will have a full lookup explanation emitted in debug mode and the cost of generating and formatting all of that is high.
