Cfengine Components


cf-execd:

It runs as a daemon and its job is to start the cf-agent process at a specified time interval.

cf-agent:

Is an agent that is called by the cf-execd process. The cf-agent component does the heavy work of system automation and maintenance.

cf-serverd:

The cf-serverd process is used to distribute policy and/or data files.

[root@mail.zimbra.lab ~]# man -k cf-
cf-agent             (8)  - cfengine's change agent
cf-execd             (8)  - cfengine's execution agent
cf-key               (8)  - cfengine's key generator
cf-know              (8)  - cfengine's knowledge agent
cf-monitord          (8)  - cfengine's monitoring agent
cf-promises          (8)  - cfengine's promise analyzer
cf-report            (8)  - cfengine's reporting agent
cf-runagent          (8)  - Run agent
cf-serverd           (8)  - cfengine's server agent

A promise is a statement, written in plain text using the CFEngine language, that describes the desired state of a system. A policy is a collection of one or more related promises, which is executed every time the cf-agent runs.
