I do this with environment variables. The cron job that runs cfengine
looks like this:
30 * * * * root RUNNING_FROM_CRON=YES /usr/sbin/cfexecd -F
And then in the configs I have:
splay = ( IsDefined(RUNNING_FROM_CRON) )
SplayTime = ( 55 )
... so when it's run by hand, RUNNING_FROM_CRON is unset, the "splay"
class isn't defined, and no splaying happens.
