Hi all. If I use xargs -P for parallel excution of commands distributed by ssh over several machines, the start-up by xargs is too fast (yes, not too slow :-) ) so that the load balancer (that selects the best node for the current ssh job) will not catch up with the newly started processes. Therefore the processes are badly distributed.
A solution would be be an xargs option like --delay-parallel-start=<SECS> which waits <SECS> seconds before starting a new parallel job. How can this be achieved currently? Sven
