The Horny Gollach
The horny gollach's an awesome beast,
Souple an' scaley;
He has twa horns an' a hantle o' feet
An' a forky tailie.
The cluster consists of 8 Pentium II machines, networked with a 100Mbps
EtherNet via a CISCO CS2912 12-port switch with 3.2 Gbps backplane. The
machines are all dual-bootable with Winows NT4.0 and Redhat Linux 6.0.
The Linux kernel has been upgraded to version 2.2.14 and runs MOSIX.
The cluster is currently running Parallel Virtual Machine (PVM), version 3.4.0, XPVM, version 1.2.5 and MPICH (an open source version of MPI - Message Passing Interface).
