NAME

cf-monitord - cfengine's monitoring agent

 

SYNOPSIS:


 cf-monitord [options]

 

DESCRIPTION:

The monitoring agent is a machine-learning, sampling daemon which learns the normal state of the current host and classifies new observations in terms of the patterns formed by previous ones. The data are made available to and read by cf-agent for classification of responses to anomalous states. cfengine is a self-healing configuration and change management based system. You can think of 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 cfengine is to create a one or more sets of configuration files which willclassify and describe the setup of every host in a network.
