Did you try ClusterShell (http://cea-hpc.github.io/clustershell/)?
It's in Python, faster than pdsh
(https://github.com/cea-hpc/clustershell/wiki/Pdsh), and it's also a
full framework you can reuse for you own code. It's notably used in
Shine, a command line tool designed to setup and manage Lustre
filesystems (http://sourceforge.net/p/lustre-shine/wiki/QuickStart/).
