2014 Linux Symposium, July 14-16

Milkcheck : the distributed service manager

Aurelien Cedeyn (aurelien.cedeyn@gmail.com)

Milkcheck runs commands across various servers, based on dependencies between them, and offers a compact execution summary. It aims to manage service starting and checking on very large number of servers, like in HPC world. It can run tens of thousands of commands across thousand servers in very short time.

Milkcheck uses ClusterShell, an open source Python library, designed to run local or distant commands in parallel on server farms or on large Linux clusters.

This talk will give an overview of Milkcheck and why it was a good choice to use the ClusterShell library.
