GNU Parallel 20140222

A CLI tool that can be used to execute jobs in parallel, on remote Linux machines
GNU Parallel is a free and open source GNU command-line software especially designed to be used when executing jobs in parallel, on one or more computers.

The tool can be used to run single commands or small scripts, as well as a command that reads from a pipe. The typical input is a list of hosts, a list of files, a list of users, a list of tables, or a list of URLs.

The application can also be used to split the input and pipe into commands, in parallel, as well as an alternative for the cat | bash or xargs commands.
