    +title: Effectors
    +layout: website-normal
    +Effectors perform an operation of some kind, carried out by a Brooklyn Entity.
    +They can be manually invoked or triggered by a Policy.
    +Common uses of a effector include the following:
    +*	perform a command on a remote machine,
    +*	collect data and publish them to sensors.
    +Entities have default effectors, the lifecycle management effectors like ``start``, ``stop``,
``restart``, and clearly more ``Effectors`` can be attached to them.
    +Off-the-Shelf Effectors
    +Effectors are highly reusable as their inputs, thresholds and targets are customizable.
    +### SSHCommandEffector
    +An ```Effector``` to invoke a command on a node accessible via SSH.
    +It allows to execute a ```command``` in a specific ```execution director``` (executionDir)
by using a custom ```shell environment` (shellEnv).
    +By default, the specified command will be executed on the entity where the effector is
attached or on all *children* or all *members* (if it is a group) by configuring ```executionTarget```.
    +Here a simple example of an ```SshCommandEffector``` definition:
    +{% highlight yaml %}
    +  brooklyn.initializers:
    +  - type: org.apache.brooklyn.core.effector.ssh.SshCommandEffector
    +    brooklyn.config:
    +      name: sayHiNetcat
    +      description: Echo a small hello string to the netcat entity
    +      command: |
    +        echo $message | nc $TARGET_HOSTNAME 4321
    +      parameters:
    +        message:
    +          description: The string to pass to netcat
    +          defaultValue: hi netcat
    +{% endhighlight %}
    +See [```here```](
for more details.
    +### HTTPCommandEffector
    +An ```Effector``` to invoke REST endpoints.
    +It allows to specify the URI, the HTTP verb, credentials for authentication and HTTP
