Use MCollective to gradually return console output of long-running application

asked 2014-07-14 14:00:24 -0500

Is it a right choice/possible at all to use MCollective to perform following operations:

  1. Execute on server long running command line application (takes up to hour or more) and return console output to client as it produced (more or less shortly)
  2. Execute interactive console application on server and sent inputs to it when prompted (e.g. run interactive console installer)

Task described above required to me in order to implement execution of test automation. I have already asked such question with more details in MCollective user group.
