comment Can't remove lock file in sysemd unit files
My puppet configuration is fairly complex and needs multiple runs to apply everything. I have multiple implicit dependencies between modules. As I understand, it's not best practice for puppet modules to have 'requires' and other explicit dependencies between modules. I work around the implicit dependencies by having modules skip the run if the implicit dependency is not met. I haven't bothered with puppet stages.

@c4f4t0r the default 30 minute run interval is fine for normal use, but I need the multiple runs at boot for the initial build and for larger updates. I also manage desktop machines with this config, and I want to postpone the login screen until the machine config is mostly sane. I don't want end users attempt to login when the system isn't fully configured. End users tend to complain when they login and the machine isn't fully configured.

Per @Jukka, I added the '-' to the beginning of the puppet lines, and that didn't make a difference.

I deliberately run puppet twice. It's NOT useless. I currently run puppet three times shortly after boot to have the machine be quickly configured without waiting an hour or so. The third puppet run is the normal puppet service. My machines don't converge until the second or third puppet run.

comment Simulating 1000 concurrent downloads
It depends on the tool used for downloading. curl or wget can give individual download rates. ab (apachebench) gives a summary of the download speeds. If you want a summary by machine, then sar or ifconfig can give you the number of packets received on the interface, but the best numbers will come from the program that does the downloading.
