# Genders and PDSH

Genders and PDSH grant a way to control multiple nodes at once. As such it will not function on a single node environment. To test its functionality:

  1. Show a space separated list of all the nodes with the gender <gender>.

    nodeattr -s <gender>
  2. Execute the uptime command on all nodes of the gender <gender>

    pdsh -g <gender> uptime

    This should show the time since last boot for each node.
