It's a fairly "standard" way to setup a cluster. If your question is
more "How do I do this?", then you'll need to see what Google turns up
that is close to what you have in mind or need.
Haven't had the chance for a hands-on, build-it-myself experience yet,
but have been trying to follow along. A good series (actually two, I
believe) is available in Linux Magazine for a good one-stop start.
Try this in a Google Web search:
or go to Linux Magazine and enter cluster in their search box (same
Your computational needs will dictate how to set up the slaves. This
article covers some alternatives:
Anyway, if there is anything I've learned so far, it is that no two
clusters are alike -- not in the "how-to" details at least.
Developing some "feel" up front might save you some headaches.
Google "beowulf cluster linux" and comb through what seems useful for
a start. As you get more familiar with your needs and terminology
related thereto, add terms to the search to narrow your focus. Of
course, it's obligatory to start with:
but you may need to check out:
For "higher end" solutions you can start with this Google search:
linux cluster ibm grid
If your nodes are geared to computational services though, beowulf
will be your cornerstone for initial searching.
