What is it all about?

Bcfg2 helps system administrators produce a consistent, reproducible, and verifiable description of their environment, and offers visualization and reporting tools to aid in day-to-day administrative tasks. It is the fifth generation of configuration management tools developed in the Mathematics and Computer Science Division of Argonne National Laboratory. Bcfg2 has been designed from the ground up to support gentle reconciliation between the specification and current client states.

Key Features

* The Bcfg2 server is responsible for taking a comprehensive infrastructure description and turning it into a series of configuration specifications for particular clients. It also manages probed data and tracks statistics for clients. The Bcfg2 server takes information from two sources when generating client configuration specifications. The first is a pool of metadata that describes clients as members of an aspect-based classing system. That is, clients are defined in terms of aspects of their behavior. The other is a file system repository that contains mappings from metadata to literal configuration. These are combined to form the literal configuration specifications for clients. * The Bcfg2 client attempts to reconcile the current configuration state with the configuration passed down from the server using various client tools. It does not perform any processing of the target configuration description. * Bcfg2’s reporting system is its killer feature. It allows administrators to gain a broad understanding of the configuration state of their entire environment. It summarizes * Configuration changes and when they were made * Discrepancies between the specification and current client states * Clients can be grouped by misconfiguration type * Configuration entries that are not specified * Overall client summaries according to these types
