Book review: The Linux Enterprise Cluster
Wednesday August 31 2005 @ 02:16PM EDT views: 83
Linux.com: Even if your business is not an "enterprise," The Linux Enterprise Cluster is an excellent resource for building a low-cost computing platform for a variety of services and purposes. Maybe you need a lot of computing power for complex calculations or for video rendering. Maybe you need a highly available server for a variety of Internet- or intranet-related services. No matter what your needs are, The Linux Enterprise Cluster can help any Unix, BSD, or GNU/Linux sysadmin create a single, unified computing platform out of a pile of commodity computer hardware.

Survey of Cluster File Systems
Wednesday August 31 2005 @ 12:24PM EDT views: 130
ClusterMonkey.net: Storage has become a very important part of clusters. Initially people used use NFS to distributed data to all of the nodes of the cluster. However, as clusters grew to hundreds and thousands of nodes, and the demand for increased data I/O rates grew, people realized that NFS was not going to cut it. [...]

Introduction to GridShell
Wednesday August 31 2005 @ 10:59AM EDT views: 60
GridShell -- a tool being developed at the UT Grid project -- is designed to incorporate grid concepts into well-known command shell environments.

New software for experiment management and analysis available
Wednesday August 31 2005 @ 10:50AM EDT views: 57
From: Beowulf mailing list
We (NEC C&C Research Labs) have released 'perfbase' under GPL. 'perfbase' is a set of Python scripts (currently about 12.500 lines) which, together with a PostgreSQL database server, support the management and analysis of experimental data. In principle, it is a generic tool set, but we designed it and use it to track experiments from computational science and R&D, like the performance of MPI libraries and HPC platforms assessed by benchmarks or applications.

Probing Gigabit Ethernet
Friday August 26 2005 @ 11:30AM EDT views: 97
ClusterMonkey.net: There are two ways to look at designing HPC clusters. On the positive side, there is a plethora of hardware and software options. On the negative side, there is a plethora of hardware and software options! The cluster designer has a special burden because unlike putting together one or two servers for the office, a cluster multiplies your decisions by N, where N is the number of nodes. A wrong decision can have two negative consequences. First, a fix for the problem will probably require more money and time. And, second, before the problem is fixed you may only be getting a fraction of the performance possible from your cluster. Clusters have a way of amplifying bad decisions. [...]

Intel ready to begin Phase II of losing propaganda offensive
Wednesday August 24 2005 @ 12:38AM EDT views: 93
The Register: You'll read a lot this week about the wonders of Intel. That's because Intel is hosting a developer conference in San Francisco, and the press can't gush enough over the processor maker's wizardry at these things.
