Dconf is a tool to collect a system's hardware and software configuration. Dconf allows you to take your system configuration with you and compare systems (like nodes in a cluster) to troubleshoot hardware or software problems.

It can also be configured to send out configuration changes at given intervals to a group of people, or store a new snapshot when system changes happen.

Here are some key features of "Dconf":
Stores both hardware and software configuration in a single file
Only considers files that are not the default (compares with rpmdb if possible)
Allows to compare different systems in real-time
Allows to take configuration of systems with you to customers
Makes it easier to manage systems as a group
Can send out mails when changes have happened
Allows to roll back changes or associate problems with changes

What's New in This Release:
Improvements to syslog logging.
The proprietary software configuration sections have been moved together.
netiq and iproute2 sections have been added.
