Kanif is a tool for high performance computing clusters management and administration. It combines the main functionalities of well-known cluster management tools such as c3, pdsh and dsh, and mimics their syntax. It provides three tools to run the same command on several nodes (“parallel ssh”, using the ‘kash’ command), to broadcast the copy of files or directories to several nodes (‘kaput’ command), and to gather several remote files or directories locally (‘kaget’ command). It relies on TakTuk for efficiency and scalability. In this guide, I will show you how to install kanif on Ubuntu 22.04.
