ParallelKnoppix - Rapid Deployment of a Linux Cluster for MPI Parallel Processing Using Non-Dedicated Computers
This note describes ParallelKnoppix, a bootable CD that allows creationof a Linux cluster in very little time.An experienced user can create a cluster ready to execute MPI programsin less than 10 minutes.The computers used may be heterogeneous machines, of the IA-32 architecture.When the cluster is shut down, all machines except one are in their originalstate, and the last can be returned to its original state by deleting adirectory.The system thus provides a means of using non-dedicated computers to createa cluster.An example session is documented.
