To use fabric, you need to create a fabfile.py, here is my fabfile.py
$ cat fabfile.py from fabric.api import env from fabric.api import run env.hosts = ['s20n','s46n','s48n','s74n'] env.user = 'root' env.port = 3333 def uptime(): run('uptime') def mailq(): run('exim -bpc') def eximrm(): run('eximrm') def df(): run('df -h') def uname(): run('uname -r') def upgrade(): run('yum upgrade -y') def honcpanel(): run('cd /usr/honcpanel && git pull origin master');
To run uptime on all servers, i run
