|Full description=Intended for sys admins, cfengine is a tool for setting up and maintaining BSD and System 5-like operating systems optionally attached to a TCP/IP network. The program focuses on a few key areas that scripts tend to mishandle. From a single configuration files (or set of files) you specify, using classes, your network configuration; cfengine then parses the file and carries out the instructions, warning you about errors (or fixing them) as it goes. You can think of cfengine as a very high level language, higher than Perl or shell: a single command can result in many hundreds of operations being performed on multiple hosts. You can also use it as a net-wide front end for 'cron.'

Cfengine

http://www.gnu.org/software/cfengine
Intended for sys admins, cfengine is a tool for setting up and maintaining BSD and System 5-like operating systems optionally attached to a TCP/IP network. The program focuses on a few key areas that scripts tend to mishandle. From a single configuration files (or set of files) you specify, using classes, your network configuration; cfengine then parses the file and carries out the instructions, warning you about errors (or fixing them) as it goes. You can think of cfengine as a very high level language, higher than Perl or shell: a single command can result in many hundreds of operations being performed on multiple hosts. You can also use it as a net-wide front end for 'cron.'
