From Earlham Cluster Department
The PetaKit Project aims to make a small library of programs that can be run across parallel platforms to gauge the performance of various examples of parallel code.
Area under curve is an embarrassingly parallel Riemann-sum program.
- Make sure to run bootstrap.sh on BobSCEd0 before trying to build on BobSCEd0. Hopper and BobSCEd share the same filesystem, but configure.ac makes different makefiles depending on which machine it's run.
GalaxSee is an instantiation of the n-body problem.
The data harvester runs the programs and collects results, placing them in a database on Hopper.
- acl3.cs.earlham.edu is evading the getCluster() algorithm. Somehow, instead of being classified as ACLs (the cluster it's part of) it is left unchanged.
- A direct test of Cluster.pm, the perl module containing the getCluster() function, successfully identifies acl3.cs.earlham.edu as a member of ACLs.
