You're right. Sorry about the typo.

Maybe a push model is more appropriate for your problem. It would be
overly simplistic to say that relying on cfrun is error prone, but,
for example, what happens when one of your machines is down during the
friday push? Do your hosts also poll for changes upon boot? If the
previously described machine was brought back up on saturday, would you
have an out of date machine for a week? Etc.

I would not worry about the network traffic. As long as your clients
are not DDoSing the cfengine master, all is well.
