       cf-runagent - Run agent


        cf-runagent [options]


       The run agent connects to a list of running instances of the cf-serverd
       service. The agent  allows  a  user  to  forego  the  usual  scheduling
       interval  for  the  agent  and  activate  cf-agent  on  a  remote host.
       Additionally, a user can send additional classes to be defined  on  the
       remote  host.  Two  kinds  of classes may be sent: classes to decide on
       which hosts the agent will  be  started,  and  classes  that  the  user
       requests  the  agent  should  define  on execution.  The latter type is
       regulated by cf-serverd’s role based access  control.   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.
