Historically, sea-slang for gossip - a scuttlebutt is basically a watercooler on a ship. Scuttlebutt is a decent(ralised) secure gossip platform.

Test from shell script if remote TCP port is open - Stack Overflow
It's easy enough to do with the -z and -w TIMEOUToptions to nc, but not all systems have ncinstalled. If you have a recent enough version of bash, this will work: # Connection successful: $ timeout 1 bash -c 'cat < /dev/null > /dev/tcp/google.com/80' $ echo $? 0 # Connection failure prior to the timeout $ timeout 1 bash -c 'cat < /dev/null > /dev/tcp/sfsfdfdff.com/80' bash: sfsfdfdff.com: Name or service not known bash: /dev/tcp/sfsfdfdff.com/80: Invalid argument $ echo $? 1 # Connection not established by the timeout $ timeout 1 bash -c 'cat < /dev/null > /dev/tcp/google.com/81' $ echo $? 124 What's happening here is that timeout will run the subcommand and kill it if it doesn't exit within the specified timeout (1 second in the above example). In this case bash is the subcommand and uses its special /dev/tcp handling to try and open a connection to the server and port specified. If bash can open the connection within the timeout, cat will just close it immediately (since it's reading from /dev/null) and exit with a status code of 0 which will propagate through bash and then timeout. If bash gets a connection failure prior to the specified timeout, then bashwill exit with an exit code of 1 which timeout will also return. And if bash isn't able to establish a connection and the specified timeout expires, then timeout will kill bash and exit with a status of 124.

This is exactly right. Benefits, plus challenges that (faced rightly) bring deeper benefits.

Jenkins users - Scheduled Safe Restart
You can also use an SSH key for authentication with jenkins-cli.jar (configure the key in the Jenkins user configuration), so if "environment" refers to non-technical reasons, that would be an option. Then there's the REST API. POST to /safeRestart to perform that action. For authentication, use the API key of the user account in Jenkins instead of a password. If you use the Groovy plugin, you could create a job that performs safeRestart in a System Groovy build step with 'jenkins.model.Jenkins.instance.safeRestart()'. Schedule as you would any other job.
