Pat, I sent this to you in Jan, I'm re-sending to the list:
Have you spent any time looking at MPI 2 yet? I noticed that all the P4
infrastructure has been replaced by python daemons. It doesn't look
like that has any bearing on pympi though, because pympi would be
launched by mpiexec - which looks like a C program?
currently looking at compute farm type possibilities for some of the
GFI software, though it may end up being java based, due to some of the
servers being java. Also a single queue/multiple worker approach is
better for portfolio analysis.
Currently I'm using windows for everything at work right now, so have not used pympi at all recently.
FYi: Someone at USC created a new single queue/multiple worker python library:http://www.parallelpython.com/
