GRID::Cluster::Result - The object managing the result of a GRID::Cluster remote command execution


The result of a call to a remote command, for example using methods copyandmake or chdir of GRID::Cluster, is a reference to a GRID::Cluster::Result object. This kind of object is responsible for obtaining the results for each machine that is part of a GRID::Cluster object.

These results allow to identify which machines has finished the execution of a remote command satisfactorily, and in which ones a failure has occurred.

A GRID::Cluster::Result object contains, mainly, a hash with keys the names of the different machines and values the corresponding GRID::Machine::Result objects.


The Constructor new


  my $r = GRID::Cluster::Result->new();

It builds a new result object. No parameters are required.

The method add


    host_name      => $_,
    machine_result => $machine_result

This method adds a GRID::Machine::Result object to an existing GRID::Cluster::Result object. The parameters are:

  • host_name: A string containing the name of a machine.

  • machine_result: A reference to a GRID::Machine::Result object.

The method result

This method returns a reference to a list of trues or falses, depending on there were / weren't errors during the execution of a remote command in every machine.

The method allfirstok

This method returns true if all the values of the list returned by the method result are true. Moreover, this method is used to overload the operator bool.

The method str

This method returns the string made of concatenating stdout, stderr and errmsg of every machine. The resulting string of calling this method looks like:

  host2: file not found

Furthermore, this method is used to overload the Perl operator q(""). Thus, wherever a GRID::Cluster::Result object is used on a scalar string context the method str will be called.
