Usefull tools making your life easier

dsh - the distributed/dancer shell


The dancer shell is very usefull to run identical commands on the whole cluster, a simple check good be:
dsh -aMF30 "uptime; sleep 1"


Please refer to the man page man 1 dsh for information on all options, here are just the most useful ones:
Use the prepared system file /etc/dsh/machines.list
Fork that many parallel jobs, don't go too high, 20-30 should be safe
Prepend the machine name before the stdout of the process on the node
specify your own file with one machine name or IP address per line
