cf-agent - cfengine's change agent
The main Cfengine agent is the instigator of change in the system. In that sense it is the most important part of the Cfengine suite. cfengine is a self-healing configuration and change management based system. You can think of cfengine as a very high level language, much higher level than Perl or shell. Asingle statement is called a promise, and compliance can result in many hundreds of filesbeing created, or the permissions of many hundreds offiles being set. The idea of cfengine is to create a one or more sets of configuration files which willclassify and describe the setup of every host in a network.
