Parallel versions of SSH-based tools


pssh provides a number of commands for executing against a group of computers, using SSH. It's most useful for operating on clusters of homogenously-configured hosts.

The package contains:

 - Parallel ssh (parallel-ssh, upstream calls it pssh), executes commands on
   multiple hosts in parallel
 - Parallel scp (parallel-scp, upstream calls it pscp), copies files to
   multiple remote hosts in parallel
 - Parallel rsync (parallel-rsync, upstream calls it prsync), efficiently
   copies files to multiple hosts in parallel
 - Parallel nuke (parallel-nuke, upstream calls it pnuke), kills processes on
   multiple remote hosts in parallel
 - Parallel slurp (parallel-slurp, upstream calls it pslurp), copies files
   from multiple remote hosts to a central host in parallel

These tools are good for controlling large collections of nodes, where faster alternatives such as gexec and pcp are not available.
