High Performance Linux Clusters with OSCAR, Rocks, OpenMosix, and MPI






By Joseph D. Sloan

Publisher : O'Reilly
ISBN : 0-596-00570-9
Pages : 360

This new guide covers everything you need to plan, build, and deploy a high-performance Linux cluster. You'll learn about planning, hardware choices, bulk installation of Linux on multiple systems, and other basic considerations. Learn about the major free software projects and how to choose those that are most helpful to new cluster administrators and programmers. Guidelines for debugging, profiling, performance tuning, and managing jobs from multiple users round out this immensely useful book.
