Power to the cluster!
powerman is free UNIX/Linux software that controls (remotely and in parallel) switched power distribution units.

powerman is suitable for remote operation of Linux systems in a data center or compute cluster environment. (See conman for complementary serial console management)

powerman can be extended to support new devices using an expect-like scripting language.

powerman can use ethernet, serial, or pipe connections to communicate with remote power distribution units or power control daemons such as ipmipower from the FreeIPMI project.
