Executes commands simultaneously on several hosts

The 'diligence' shell (dish) lets you execute commands on several hosts. By using expect to automate interactive remote logins via ssh, rsh or telnet, dish executes commands, sequentially or simultaneously, on all specified hosts. It is a powerful system administration tool for a group (cluster) of heterogeneous hosts allowing remote control from a single point of management. 'dish' is very flexible, and has similar functionality to IBM's dsh (distributed shell) as well as the ability to remotely execute commands which require authentication - ie in case of password change, scp inside ssh, password-protected smbfs mount, su shell, etc.
