The Bcfg2 Reporting SystemΒΆ

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

There are two systems, the old system, which builds static reports based on a series of XSLT stylesheets and a new dynamic reporting system that uses django and a database backend.
