Dconf is a tool to collect a system's hardware and software configuration. It 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.
