       cf-monitord - cfengine’s monitoring agent


        cf-monitord [options]


       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.
