(Excel) SSH Parallel Remote Commands on Multiple Servers

Shows how to execute a command in parallel on multiple servers.

Note: This example requires Chilkat v9.5.0.65 or greater.

'  This example assumes Chilkat SSH/SFTP to have been previously unlocked.
'  See Unlock SSH for sample code.

'  Executing a command on multiple servers simultaneously is straightforward.
'  It's just a matter of using one SSH object per server..
Dim ssh1 As Chilkat.Ssh
Set ssh1 = Chilkat.NewSsh
Dim ssh2 As Chilkat.Ssh
Set ssh2 = Chilkat.NewSsh
Dim ssh3 As Chilkat.Ssh
Set ssh3 = Chilkat.NewSsh

Dim port As Long
port = 22
Dim success As Boolean
success = ssh1.Connect("ssh-server1.com",port)
If (success <> True) Then
    Debug.Print ssh1.LastErrorText
    Exit Sub
End If

'  Authenticate using login/password:
success = ssh1.AuthenticatePw("sshLogin1","sshPassword1")
If (success <> True) Then
    Debug.Print ssh1.LastErrorText
    Exit Sub
End If

'  Connect and authenticate with 2 more servers.
'  For brevity, the success/failure won't be checked...
success = ssh2.Connect("ssh-server2.com",port)
success = ssh2.AuthenticatePw("sshLogin2","sshPassword2")
success = ssh3.Connect("ssh-server3.com",port)
success = ssh3.AuthenticatePw("sshLogin3","sshPassword3")

'  Note: If we wanted, we could've used ConnectAsync and AuthenticatePwAsync
'  to do the connecting and authenticating in parallel...

'  The command to be run on each SSH server will sleep for 5 seconds,
'  and then show the current system date/time.
Dim cmd As String
cmd = "sleep 5; date"

'  Start each command
Dim ssh1Channel As Long
ssh1Channel = ssh1.QuickCmdSend(cmd)
If (ssh1Channel < 0) Then
    Debug.Print ssh1.LastErrorText
    Exit Sub
End If

'  For brevity, we're not checking the return values here:
Dim ssh2Channel As Long
ssh2Channel = ssh2.QuickCmdSend(cmd)
Dim ssh3Channel As Long
ssh3Channel = ssh3.QuickCmdSend(cmd)

'  OK, at this point the command is running simultaneously on each server.

'  Now collect the results of each command.
Dim pollTimeoutMs As Long
pollTimeoutMs = 50
Dim numFinished As Long
numFinished = 0
Dim channel As Long
'  Note: You would rewrite this code to use arrays.
Dim ssh1Finished As Boolean

    '  QuickCmdCheck returns a channel number if a channel finished.
