SYNOPSIS:

cf-runagent [options]

DESCRIPTION:

The run agent connects to a list of running instances of the cf-serverd service. The agent allows a user to forego the usual scheduling interval for the agent and activate cf-agent on a remote host. Additionally, a user can send additional classes to be defined on the remote host. Two kinds of classes may be sent: classes to decide on which hosts the agent will be started, and classes that the user requests the agent should define on execution. The latter type is regulated by cf-serverd’s role based access control. cfengine is a self-healing configuration and change management based system. You can think of.B 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 .B cfengine is to create a one or more sets of configuration files which willclassify and describe the setup of every host in a network.
