Not entirely sure what you’re getting at: Do you want to run the same
script on many machines in parallel? If you want to use a cluster
check out Ara Howard’s rq:

Maybe you want a distributed object system. If that’s the case, have
a look at drb.

Hi,
I want something that can execute a number of different test
scripts
simultaneously on networked computers,and can control the execution
of those tests scripts from single computer.
I wanted to know is there anything using ruby n watir so that test
scripts
can be assigned to multiple computers.I think its a more a Watir
question.

Thanks in advance
Tanushree

There used to be something called TaskMaster which I created for doing
that very thing. However, I doubt it works with Ruby 1.8.x and it’s
been years since I even looked at it. But it did use drb to
distribute tests to many different computers.
