Pdsh is a multithreaded remote shell client which executes commands on multiple
remote hosts in parallel. Pdsh can use several different remote shell services,
including standard "rsh", Kerberos IV, and ssh.

The big advantages of pdsh really kick in when you combine it with genders (bug

Upstream is LLNL for this package. This is not a kernel feature, it is a

Is this still a consideration for 5.1? Would have to be a package add and need
someone to support it.
Also, since this is adding a package, changing component to distribution and
reassigning it to someone in pm.
Honestly, I think for RHEL 6 we'd use something like Func if we were going to go down this road.
Can we include this in EPEL? I would like to work on becoming the maintainer.
I'm not discounting func, but the functionality with pdsh very useful for forking parallel commands with ssh, rsh, and general exec.
There is nothing that prevents a willing maintainer from maintaining a properly-licensed open-source package in EPEL.
Product Management has reviewed and declined this request. You may appeal this
decision by reopening this request.
