After I update a manifest for a node; does puppetmaster automatically send the configuration to the node? If it does what is the interval and how do I change it? Where can I find more information about this?

I assume it's the runinterval for puppet.conf? The default setting is 1800 seconds; however I have yet to notice any configuration change since puppetmaster started.

The master doesn't send the file to the node; the node checks in with the master on the run interval.

And yeah, no need to restart the master service to serve the new updates.

Use puppet client at your node with --test --noop to see if there will be any change applied in a run, and find if you have errors preventing the puppet client run.
