Re(1): This isn't good enough?

It's absolutely not good enough. 4 or so years ago a coworker and I wrote a suite of parallel ssh tools to help perform security related duties on the very large network in our global corp. With our tools on a mosix cluster using load balanced ssh-agents across multiple nodes we could run upto 1000 outbound sessions concurrently. This made tasks such as looking for users processes or cronjobs on 10,000+ hosts world wide a task that could be done in a reasonable amount of time, as opposed to taking more than a day.
