You can write a Bash script to connect to all those servers (reading input from a file or from within the script using 'here' document), connect to them using SSH and save the output in a file for reviewing later. If you've set up SSH authentication with keys (host or user) you can use the script without the need for a password. If you don't you can use a program like sshpass to pass the password from within the script to the SSH command. This is one approach you can use, the work is up to you.

Kind regards,
