For these kinds of situations,  you may want to keep arounda  cluster
description file that you pass to ipcluster instead of manually
starting everyone:

maqroll[pycode]> cat cluster-appm7.py
"""Simple description of a distributed cluster"""

controller = dict(host='foo',
                  engine_port=None, # default is 10105

engines = dict(my.first.host.com=1,
               another.host.com=2,  # 2 means 2 engines on this node

It's convenient to keep things this way when describing clusters that
you want to reuse often.  You pass this description to ipcluster via
the -f flag.
