NAME

       cf-execd - cfengine's execution agent

SYNOPSIS:

        cf-execd [options]

DESCRIPTION:

       The  executor daemon is a scheduler and wrapper for execution of cf-agent. It collects the
       output of the agent and can email it to a specified address. It can splay the  start  time
       of executions across the network and work as a class-based clock for scheduling.  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.
