parallel interactive shell console

pconsole allows you to connect to each node of your cluster (e.g. via ssh or rsh) simultaneously by spawning one terminal per host or job. Alternatively you can even connect to already existing terminal sessions.

You can type your administrative commands either in a specialized window that 'multiplies' the input to each of the connections you have opened or use each of the connected terminals in case one host or job needs some additional commands to be typed.

pconsole is best run from within X Window, although it is possible to employ it without X (in console mode) as well. You need to install pconsole on only 1 machine in the cluster, this would usually be your central administrative node.

pconsole's X automatisms work well with window-managers which offer a smart placement mode without resizing new windows or with a tiling mode which resizes all windows to the same size.

It is known to work very well with FVWM and has proven less usable with Awesome or Ratpoison. For usage with window-managers focussed on full-screen applications like ratpoison, for parallel interactive SSH sessions MultiSSH (package "mssh") is probably be the better choice due to managing all SSH sessions in one application window.
