BEOWULF Cluster at NMU
The BEOWULF Cluster is up and running! (as of March 2001)
Thanks to the work of Randy and
Ryan Dieter in Fall of 2000, and to Denny Vandenberg and Mike Kowalcyzk
in Winter 2001.
As of April, 2001, there are 8 nodes
working, with more on the way (donations accepted!)
Has been tested by Denny with sample
code for distributed calculation of Pi
this code uses MPI (message
is the code (on beowulf1 in /usr/mpi-beowulf/examples)
Can learn MPI from these,
at least the basics.
Mike is finishing a distributed
version of our GA++ code.
Ask the Sys. Admin. (??) for
an account, take the MPI sample code, and go with it!
Let's get some distributed and parallel
