ClusterIt is a suite of software to allow easy maintenance of large groups of machines. It does not provide a parallel programing environment, but is meant to be utilized in managing one, or simply to manage massive server farms. It includes such features as parallel rsh, parallel copy, parallel virtual xterminals (xterms), and job scheduling facilities for performing parallel compiling.
