OK, then what is it? How is it different from configuration management software like cfengine? How is it different from network monitoring software like Nagios? I guess I expected a bit more in examples. Right now, the bulk of the article is mostly marketing talk from Red Hat about how nice their product is, but why should I use it? The only example given about the FuncInventory module is not specific at all and makes it look a lot like monitoring software, putting Func in the same league as Nagios.

Return to Func team puts network management back in sysadmins' control
