Default Cfengine automation

We are building many servers nowadays and would like install patches and packages on multiple servers. All of them are linux boxes. Have you guys tried cfengine? I saw good review about cfengine. If you have any experience with cfengine, please let me know.

Thank You,
Imran

If you want to install packages/patches on multiple servers. It is a good tool to automate the system. Client system run every hour and if there is any update it . What kind of information are you looking for?

One of the best advantage of cfengine is it doesn't require installation of ruby in that.Also you can easily delegate polices to different groups and can also pull the policies off different servers are difficult to control directly.
