Next meeting is 11th of June, same time, same place. Speaker is Amnon
Barak, with his abstract below. Hope to see you all there!
> An Overview of the MOSIX Multicomputer System for Cluster Computing
> Prof. Amnon Barak
> Institute of Computer Science
> The Hebrew University of Jerusalem
> Jerusalem 91904, Israel
> Scalable Computing Clusters (SCC) are becoming an alternative to
> supercomputers and MPP's for the execution of high performance,
> demanding applications in multi-user, time-sharing environments. In
> order to better utilize the multiple resources of SCC's it is neces-
> sary to develop means for cluster wide resource allocation and shar-
> ing, that will make an SCC easy to program and use.
> The MOSIX operating system is an enhancement of UNIX with on-line
> algorithms for adaptive, cluster wide resource sharing. These algorithms
> are geared for performance scalability using a preemptive process
> migration for load-balancing and memory-sharing in order to create a
> convenient time-sharing execution environment for HPC, particularly for
> applications that are written in PVM and MPI.
> The talk gives an overview of MOSIX and its resource sharing algo-
> rithms. The talk then presents our experience with the execution of
> several large-scale parallel applications, including Protein
> sequences, molecular and quantum dynamics simulations.
