Easy remote command execution
Easily run commands on collections of hosts
Tues expects a command to execute, followed by the name of a hostname provider and its arguments.
Execute on all hosts in file hostnames.
echo "localhost" > hostnames tues "ls" file hostnames
Execute on all hosts matching a certain foreman expression.
export FOREMAN_URL="https://user:firstname.lastname@example.org/" tues "ls" fm "class = my::class"
Execute on all hosts with a given service pattern not in state OK
export NAGIOS_HOST="nagios" export NAGIOS_LIVESTATUS_SOCKET="/var/lib/nagios3/rw/livestatus" tues -u root "puppet agent run --test" nagios puppet_status
The values of the environment variables above are the defaults, you do not need to specify them if they match your setup.
New providers may be added by putting a new executable with a name like “tues-provider-” on your PATH. A provider is expected to return a newline seperated list of hosts.
If the provider returns with an error, the output is considered to be an error message and/or it’s help output. If ‘–help’ is passed through to the provider the output is displayed no matter what exit code is used.
