I am looking at framework solutions for administering servers
distributed across multiple host machines. From a quick reading of the
Webmin docs it looks to be very flexible in terms of developing modules
for administration of servers running on the local Webmin host, but I'm
not seeing support for administration of processes running on remote
hosts. One scenario for supporting this requirement would involve
something like 1 master and multiple slave instances of Webmin, where
one would install Webmin on each remote host and implement some sort of
RPC interface between the "master" Webmin instance and the distributed
"slave" Webmin instances. Any thoughts on making external calls into
the Webmin daemon, circumventing the GUI? Or does anybody have
experience with other Webadmin-based solutions to the remote-host
