Priya R asked:
I have installed Puppet Enterprise on CentOS 7. I can see that several Puppet services fail to start saying holdoff time over. What does this mean?
Sep 03 20:50:16 l-pm1 systemd: pe-puppetdb.service holdoff time over, scheduling restart. Sep 03 20:50:16 l-pm1 systemd: Starting pe-puppetdb Service...
After a service stops (or fails to start), systemd waits for a short period of time before attempting to restart it.
The amount of wait time is configurable by setting
RestartSec= in the unit.
Configures the time to sleep before restarting a service (as configured with
Restart=). Takes a unit-less value in seconds, or a time span value such as “5min 20s”. Defaults to 100ms.
