Linux Cluster Construction

SESSION: S11: Linux Cluster Construction

EVENT TYPE: Tutorial

TIME: 8:30AM - 5:00PM

Presenter(s):Matthew Woitaszek, Michael Oberg, Paul Marshall, Guy Cobb, Theron Voran


The Linux Cluster Construction tutorial provides participants a hands-on opportunity to turn a small collection of Linux hosts into a Beowulf cluster ready to run MPI-based parallel applications. Intended for those new to cluster computing, the tutorial starts by introducing basic system administration skills and the software components necessary to run parallel jobs through a batch scheduler, and then addresses system performance, common administrative tasks, and cluster scalability. Participants should bring a laptop and expect to work in small groups. Each group is given superuser access to a private collection of hosts (running on virtual machines offsite) to provide hands-on cluster administration experience. The tutorial should be helpful to students and researchers interested in developing knowledge about basic system operations in order to take advantage of their local resources or professionally-administered clusters. Attendees of the Linux Cluster Construction tutorial should emerge ready to enter next year's Cluster Challenge!
