The convenience script dask-ssh opens several SSH connections to your target computers and initializes the network accordingly. You can give it a list of hostnames or IP addresses:

$ dask-ssh

Or you can use normal UNIX grouping:

$ dask-ssh 192.168.0.{1,2,3,4}

Or you can specify a hostfile that includes a list of hosts:

$ cat hostfile.txt

$ dask-ssh --hostfile hostfile.txt

The dask-ssh utility depends on the paramiko:

pip install paramiko

CLI Options


The command line documentation here may differ depending on your installed version. We recommend referring to the output of dask-ssh --help.

.. click:: distributed.cli.dask_ssh:main
   :prog: dask-ssh
You can’t perform that action at this time.
