Description Marek Hulan 2018-08-13 12:03:31 UTC
This means that every host that hasn't reported in the last 5 minutes is out of sync. With Puppet the default interval is 30 minutes which means that most of your infra is out of sync all the time.

commit:348ec9c0d6ff6c2574c5e6dddbe8e9203d73d2e8 introduced this setting.

Upstream bug assigned to sgraessl

Comment 4 Marek Hulan 2018-08-13 12:08:18 UTC
To restore the original behavior, this should be CPed to 6.4.

Reproducing steps:
1) setup host with default puppet interval, make sure puppet run takes a while
2) wait for 30 minutes
3) host is marked as out of sync after 30 minutes, when puppet run finishes, e.g. 31th minute, it's green again

Actual results:
There used to be out of sync field that was a safety bumper, defaulting to 5 minutes. Its meaning has changed so to restore original behavior, puppet interval in settings should be set to 35

Expected results: puppet_interval setting is automatically set to 35 on new instance and is upgraded to 35 on upgrade, if 6.3 default value remained at 30. If user changed it e.g. to 60, then it remains 60.
