distssh is a frontend to ssh that find the least loaded host in a cluster and execute commands on it.
It can alternatively be used to find and run an interactive shell on the least loaded host.
distssh depends on the following software packages:
Download the D compiler of your choice, extract it and add to your PATH shell variable.
# example with an extracted DMD export PATH=/path/to/dmd/linux/bin64/:$PATH
Once the dependencies are installed it is time to download the source code to install distssh.
git clone https://github.com/joakim-brannstrom/distssh.git cd distssh dub build -b release
Copy the file in build/ to wherever you want to install it. When you have placed it at where you want the run the install command to setup the needed symlinks:
Done! Have fun. Don't be shy to report any issue that you find.
For distssh to be useful the environment variable DISTSSH_HOSTS has to be set.
; is used to separate hosts.
When that is done it is now ready to use!
This is the simplest usage. It gives you a shell at the cluster.
distshell # or distssh shell
This will execute the command on the cluster.
distssh cmd -- ls
Export the Environemnt to Remote Host
This is useful for those development environments where it is heavy to reload the shell with the correct modules. By exporting and then importing the environment on the remote host this can be bypassed/sped up.
Note that this basically requires them to be equivalent.
# store an export of the env distssh env -e # now the env is reused on the remote hosts distcmd ls
It is also possible to clone the current environment without first exporting it to a file.
distssh distcmd --clone-env -- ls
The exported environment can also be used to run commands locally.
distssh localrun -- env
Distssh can display the current load of the cluster. The servers that are
listed are those that distssh is currently able to connect to and that respond
The load is normalised to what is considered "best practice" when comparing the
loadavg by dividing it by the number of cores that are available
on the server. A server is most probably overloaded if it is above 1.0.
distssh try to do a good job of cleaning up stale processes and
such when it logout of a server there are circumstances wherein a process can
be left dangling on a server in the cluster and take up resources. What
resource is obviously dependent on what type of process that is left.
purge these processes from the cluster. This can be executed
either manually or by the daemon in the background.
# print all processes that have escaped sshd, from all users distssh purge -p # print those that have escaped the current user distssh purge -p --user-filter # kill them distssh purge -p --user-filter -k
These environment variables control the behavior of distssh.
DISTSSH_HOSTS: the hosts to load balance among. Hosts are separated by
export DISTSSH_HOSTS='localhost;some_remove' distcmd ls
DISTSSH_IMPORT_ENV: filename to load the environment from. Example:
export DISTSSH_IMPORT_ENV="$HOME/foo.export" distcmd ls
DISTSSH_ENV_EXPORT_FILTER: environment keys to remove when creating an export. Keys are separated by
export DISTSSH_ENV_EXPORT_FILTER='PWD;USER;USERNAME;_' distssh --export-env
DISTSSH_AUTO_PURGE: set the variable to
1to activate automatic purge of processes that isn't part of a process subtree which contains a whitelisted process when the daemon is running. Example:
DISTSSH_PURGE_WLIST: a list of case insensitive regex separated by
;. Used both by the manual
purgesub-command and the daemon mode. Example:
# will purge all processes that have "escaped" an interactive sshd instance export DISTSSH_PURGE_WLIST='.*sshd'
