Hello, simple question ;-) It seems that mcollective and its plugins are not well documented so i'm searching for the "REAL" docmentation of mco and its features.
Apart from link text i want to know what options i can use e.g. for the RPC call etc.
Before issuing a support ticket perhaps anyone can tell (apart from reading the source) what options, functions i can use and are available.
Especially for the rpc and its subfilters.
The manpage is not "considerable".

Hello Rajeev, I know these docs.Also the git.
I'm searching for a list of filter functions (-S switch).
In some examples there are references to FILE or resource(), puppet(), md5 etc.
I'm looking for a reference list (same as puppet types) what it is possible.
For now i study all the DDL files to get an overview.
Nonetheless, it's not well documented and so the manpages.
Also -j doesn't meen JSON all the time ;-)
For that particular problem, i filed a support ticket
