cssh, PuTTYCS - keyboard replicators for clustered administration

If you administer a bunch of identical Linux boxes, and have to run same commands on all of them, say like manual deployments, restarts etc. – you probably log in to each of them manually and run commands. Or at best you would have a script looping through them and executing an ssh on each. However there are times when you need to be interactive on each box, yet run the same and/or series of commands.

You could use Event Sources (look for power*, for spurious wake ups), and/or keywords. Or you could manually go through all of the logs.
