Default Cluster software

Has anyone on the forum tried using things like oar or slurm to manage their home compute farms? They look rather more designed for organisations who have a hundred identical boxes in a cluster and who want to launch tasks which have to reserve eight nodes attached to the same rack switch, but with even five heterogenous boxes I wonder whether doing all my batch scheduling on one box at a time with make might not be the best way to go.

I have been wondering the very-same thing! I'm willing to do clean installs of OS/low-level components if I can control 4+ boxen from one scheduler. If "the cloud" really is everywhere, this sort of control system should be available Real Soon Now in open-source.

I've found systems that claim to do roughly this, but I'm chicken to be first to try it among forumites. If anyone does try this out, please let us know!

I've been expoloring how best to coordinate heterogeneous boxes loaded with gpu's as well.
I've read a few books on the methods and software available but nothing struck me as having the versatility I'm looking for.

Hi All,

Has anyone gone any further with this? I've come into a number of old PC's and would be keen to setup a cluster with them. It sounds like a great project for some of our students and would also contribute to this cause.

I've had a very quick look at PelicanHPC, LinuxMPI and SLURM/SchedMD and am wondering if I'm on the right track with these?

Cheers,
Chris.

P.S. it also seems that Perceus and/or the LTSP might be worth investigating further.
