1.4 Functionality

The notes above give you a rough idea of what cfengine can be used for. Here is a summary of cfagent's capabilities.

How do you run cfagent? You can run it as a cron job, or you can run it manually. You may run cfagent scripts/programs as often as you like. Each time you run a script, the engine determines whether anything needs to be done -- if nothing needs to be done, nothing is done! If you use it to monitor and configure your entire network from a central file-base, then the natural thing is to run cfengine repeatedly with the help of cron and/or cfexecd.
