NAME

cf-promises - cfengine's promise analyzer

 

SYNOPSIS:


 cf-promises [options]

 

DESCRIPTION:

The promise agent is a validator and analysis tool for configuration files belonging to any of the components of Cfengine. Configurations that make changes must be approved by this validator before being executed. 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.
