Can supervisord be used to start remote processes, monitor and manage the processes?

I'm not an expert, but I doubt it - the Features list says:

You can configure Supervisor to provide a local or remote command line and web interface.

Which means you can certainly control supervisord remotely, but there must be a copy of supervisord on the same machine as the controlled processes.

I have 4 supervisord's running on 4 servers, how can I manage the supervisord's from 1 web interface ? – Santhosh S Jan 12 '12 at 13:36
@SanthoshS, I don't know (never used the web interface), but suspect you would have to address them separately in the web browser. I.e,, machine2, etc (for however supervisord is accessed). If that isn't what you want, might be worth making this a separate new question. – Cyclops Jan 12 '12 at 13:41
