3.8.19 editfilesize

   EditfileSize  = ( size ) 

This variable is used by cfengine every time it becomes necessary to edit a file. Since file editing applies only to text files, the files are probably going to be relatively small in most cases. Asking to edit a very large (perhaps binary) file could therefore be the result of an error.

A check is therefore made as a security feature. Cfengine will refuse to edit a file which is larger than the value of editfilesize in bytes. This is to prevent possible accidents from occurring. The default value for this variable is 10000 bytes. If you don't like this feature, simply set the value to be a very large number or to zero. If the value is zero, cfengine will ignore it.
