beowulf in Virtual PC
I wanted to experiment with setting up a beowulf cluster. Is this even possible in Virtual PC? Does FreeBSD play well with Virtual PC? Thanks!
How many machines are in your experimental setup?
Well, not very many. I would maybe have 4 machines with 128 MB RAM each. I just wanted to install the software on the boxes and see if I can get the environment up and running. I'd be installing MPI, LAPACK, BLAS, Petc and PIM. My goal is just to run the example parallel code that comes with the different packages.
Should be able to get the clustered, although I don't have any experience with using Virtual PC in that setup.
It should be possible. No problem at all.
