USENIX Tenth System Administration Conference (LISA
The Igor System Administration Tool
Decision Consultants Inc.
This paper describes the system administration tool we call
Igor. Igor is a tool for administrating a large number of UNIX
systems in a diverse, networked environment. Igor consists of two
parts, an interactive GUI which is controlled by an operator, and a
daemon which is run on the UNIX target which actually executes the
commands. Igor provides very fast operation, and quick post
operation analysis of the results. In normal operations we have run
commands on over 600 hosts simultaneously in 60 seconds.
