Cfengine, or the configuration engine is an agent/software robot and a high level policy language for building expert systems to administrate and configure large computer networks. Cfengine uses the idea of classes and a primitive intelligence to define and automate the configuration and maintenance of system state, for small to huge configurations. Cfengine is designed to be a part of a computer immune system, and can be thought of as a gaming agent.
cfengine is a GNU software package, written by Mark Burgess <[email protected]>.
cfengine can be found on http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/cfengine/ or one of the mirrors.
