    schema:reviewBody ""If you are a system administrator, two things are almost certain: you are always busy, and you need more automation. The problem is that, by the time you know you really need automation, you usually don't have time to implement it. This book shows you how to use the cfengine open source automation software to save time and reduce problems at your site. We don't theorize about automation; we use cfengine to build a real, automated Linux/UNIX site from scratch." "We wrote this book to help you implement an automation framework for your site at the pace that's right for you. If you're in a hurry, you can use this book like a cookbook and quickly copy the way we did things. If you have more time, you can study the reasons behind our configuration and use this information to make decisions about how to implement automation at your site." "Once you have cfengine running on the systems at your site, you'll be able to quickly implement improvements across your systems. To see how much easier automation can make your job, browse through Chapter 7. You'll find out that it is simple to automatically configure time synchronization on all your systems once an automation framework is in place." "We are system administrators-not academics. We know from real-world experience that systems fail and that various systems and applications can fail simultaneously for differing causes. During times of crisis, you don't have time to figure out how to rebuild an application or operating system that was deployed long before. Using the automation principles in this book, you can quickly and reliably restore failed hosts and applications to a good state."--Jacket." ;
