Projects / Pydsh


PyDSH is a toolset to help simplify the administration of remote systems. The pydsh command enables running of a command on multiple hosts in parallel over RSH, SSH, or telnet, and manages your SSH public and private keys. The pydcp command enables SCP-like functions to and from multiple hosts in parallel.
