1. The process manager not heterogeneous-safe.

2. "uname -a" is not an accurate representation, since two different Linux distributions on the same architecture are not considered heterogeneous.  The datatype representation has to be different.

3. Doing an extra ssh to all the nodes is expensive to do every time.
