College Cluster at ANDC

Linked is the WikiEducator article/report on all the work that we’ve done till now in the Cluster Lab. From our ad-hoc Live CD solution to the permanent(maybe) solution that we’ve finally arrived at, the page lists everything a person would want to know about the cluster. It might not have taken this long but for all the things that have been trying to divert our attention away from the cluster the past few months. Sudhang and Amit are responsible for most of the development as most of us were away doing some internship or the other. After several failed attempts, today we finally managed to get mpich2 to work by forcing it to use TCP socket communication. The next thing we’re going to try to do is add more nodes and try using X with the object of solving more textbook problems while learning MPI programming.
