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.

Bcfg2 is based on a client-server architecture. The clients are responsible for interpreting their configurations provided by the Bcfg2 server. The clients are uploading a set of statistics to the server when the configuration is done.
