Remote Network Commands
Apart from the fact that some of the above examples probably will not run under some configurations, I have encountered some strange behavior. Consider we have, as in the previous examples, two identical files: bin.tar on banana and bin.tar on orange. Now I try on orange:
ls | grep bin
The response is bin.tar. The same goes for:
rsh banana ls | grep bin
but the next one chokes:
ls | rsh banana grep bin
Piping files into a remote shell with the command dd, though, has never choked.
With the help of these commands, getting connected to other machines is made considerably easier. The rcp and rlogin commands can be almost fully substituted for commands such as ftp and telnet on your local network. Not only can you access your accounts, you might also allow other trusted users to access your accounts by means of the .rhosts file.
Finally, the rsh command enables you to generate data streams through several different machines, accessing local disk and tape drives (or anything else you are allowed to access).

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
