cf-execd - cfengine's execution agent
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.
