GNU cfengine 3.4.0
Cfengine is a tool for setting up and maintaining BSD and System-5-like operating system optionally attached to a TCP/IP network
You can think of cfengine as a very high level language, much higher level than Perl or shell: a single statement can result in many hundreds of operations being performed on multiple hosts.
Cfengine can perform very good a lot of common system administration tasks, and allows you to build on its strengths with your own scripts. You can also use it as a netwide front-end for `cron'.
