Stem is a system administration ``enabler.'' It is not an
administrative tool, but rather a general-purpose development
framework that allows an administrator to craft tools to perform a
wide variety of tasks in a distributed environment easily and quickly.
Many common tasks can be performed with Stem scripts involving a few
lines of declarations. Current example applications include log file
collating and service load balancing. Using Stem, a non-programmer can
craft reliable network software in a few lines of declarations that
would require hundreds or thousands of lines of code in a traditional
programming language such as C.
