Unhappy Is It Possible to write a script which login a remote server


Can we write a script which
1. Logging to a Remote server.
2. Give Password.
3. Checking disk space
4. Taking log
5. If disk space is too less, give an alert
6. Doing this for several servers creating a log file.

I think this is very difficult. But is it possible?. If yes, What i have to study. I am very new to scripting but i love it. Please help me...

there are better ways to do what you want really. for a mass solution i'd suggest snmp, but certainly you can do this with a script...

Set up ssh preshared key and then a command as simple as
Code:
ssh user@server df -h
will get you the disk stats on the remote machine to do what you want with.

Looking at this in conjunction with the older telnet thread I have to
wonder why you don't look into something like nagios
