I'm using the ClusterSSH tool (using the
cssh command) to admin clusters of between 4 and 8 machines.
By default, each terminal onto a cluster host is tiled, and opened to the right of the previous, so terminals to hosts 1-4 would be opened like:
1 2 3 4
When I connect to an 8 host cluster, this ends up with 8 terminals being tiled across two monitors, and I usually need to drag the windows back into a sensible layout.
What I'm looking for is a way to have these opened in a grid, so that the terminal layout looks more like:
1 2 3 4
Including something similar for an 8 host cluster.
If the application doesn't support it directly, are there any other simple scripts/methods/commands to layout a set of windows? I'm mostly using Ubuntu (Gnome desktop) if that helps.
