Managing the network with Cfengine
Now that your Cfengine framework is configured, here are a few ideas for continued improvements:
- Centralize periodically executed jobs
- Integrate the monitoring and deployment systems by having cf-agent automatically configure monitors
- Integrate your backup system with your deployment system
- Make sure all of your nodes are configured to log centrally
The more functionality you bring within Cfengine's realm, the easier it will be to bring new services online and to recover from problems such as hardware failures or security compromises. Because you can code all the rules on how to create a node of type X in a machine-executable language, all you need to do is prepare a fresh base OS install, then install Cfengine and let it rebuild your replacement node for you.
