This package provides parallel versions of the openssh tools. Included in the distribution:
  • Parallel ssh (pssh)
  • Parallel scp (pscp)
  • Parallel rsync (prsync)
  • Parallel nuke (pnuke)
  • Parallel slurp (pslurp)


Update: I no longer have time to maintain pssh (at least in the short-term). pssh is now maintained by Andrew McNabb (amcnabb at here.
