Pinned topic Parallel Scripting Tools for Linux

‏2006-01-13T08:38:50Z |
I was asked the other day whether any parallel scripting tools exist for Linux and this seems the perfect forum to gain information. I believe the question to be centred around whether commands can be ran on multiple Linux servers at the same time, without having to type them multiple times - not too much to ask.

I've heard that there's a multi-threaded option of make (-j) and possibly that could be used in tandem with something like dsh to do parallel scripting and commands - does anyone have any other views of the tools that might be out there and their pros and cons? Especially related to reliability, performance and security?

Cheers, DpM

    Are you looking for something like pypvm?
