Re: Understanding output, modifying output, importing groups

To me, running cfagent as a shellcommand inside of cfagent seems
unnecessarily convoluted, but maybe there are reasons or advantages I
don't understand.  

Would this do what you need (making some guesses and assumptions, like
that you really meant servicea where you have service1, and that you do
have a 'groups:' or 'classes:' action heading in cf.groups):

 - move the 'control:' section to cfagent.conf (just seems like the
right thing to do)

 - drop 'shellcommands:' section

 - add this 'import:' section to cf.main
import:
        servicea::  cf.servicea
        serviceb::  cf.serviceb
