• TMUX: is a sessions multiplexer as the good old friend screen but with vitamins.
• GNU parallel is a shell tool for executing jobs in parallel using one or more computers. A job can be a single command or a small script that has to be run for each of the lines in the input. The typical input is a list of files, a list of hosts, a list of users, a list of URLs, or a list of tables. A job can also be a command that reads from a pipe. GNU parallel can then split the input and pipe it into commands in parallel.
Both work well by their own and they can collaborate for greater good.
What else can be done using GNU parallel or tmux:
• Collaborate on the same console. Two users working on the same shared session
• More examples to be added
Any idea, suggestion, question or collaboration is welcomed!
