piktx is the PIKT remote command execution utility. It takes the following command-line arguments:
Usage: piktx <-xXvhGV> [-p#] +C <command(s)> +|-H all|<host(s)> -x execute alert(s)/script(s) -X execute alert(s)/script(s) with no wait -v run in verbose mode -h show program help -G run in debug mode -V show version info -p# pause # seconds +C <command(s)> include command string(s) +|-H all|<host(s)> include/exclude host(s)/os(es)/group(s)/ alias(es)Why use piktx instead of piktc for remote command execution? For the following reasons:
- piktc runs on the master system only (for most operations, including remote command execution). piktx will run on any PIKT system, master or slave.
- piktc does not allow multiple, concurrent program runs (except for some auxiliary operations, for example 'piktc -L' or 'piktc -M'). With piktx, more than one simultaneous run is possible. (With piktc, if one sysadmin has launched a piktc operation, this effectively blocks other sysadmins from doing the same. With piktx, there is no blocking.)
- piktx uses ssh (or, if you prefer, rsh; to enable this, you need to hand-edit the piktx code) to handle the actual remote command execution. piktc uses the piktc-to-piktc_svc network transport.
See piktc for a fuller explanation of each piktx command option.
Unlike many of the other PIKT binaries (which are written using a combination of C, lex, and yacc), piktx (like piktf, pikth & rkey) is written in Perl.
