octo: parallel remote commands
I wrote a small lightweight tool to help make running commands on multiple hosts in parallel simple and easy. It was the result of frustration from working with remote server clusters, and finding deficiencies with pssh (and family).

It uses Net::SSH:Multi, and it currently supports arbitrary commands via SSH and experimental MySQL query support.

Check it out, octo., I had some spare time recently and created a site using ruby on rails to allow interested people to help each other refactor and improve their code.

This idea has been around for a long time, and around 5 years ago Marc-André Cournoyer created, which was exactly this, and I loved it. But I don't think the new owners of the site have given it much love, and it has been dead for a long while now, which is why I decided to create a similar site.

If anyone is interested in contributing or looking through the source, you can find it on github nanzhong/
