Hello all,

 

An update on my testing.

 

It actually turns out that the “demo-proclib” application does, in fact, load balance across the nodes, but that the EGSnrc Monte Carlo software that I have also been testing does not load balance across the nodes for some reason even though multiple instances are started.

 

Thanks and have a great day,

Greetings All,

 

I have just come across the “load” command that seems to give me the loading on the cluster. The strange thing is that even though I am running a demo app in “bash-ll” the load command only shows the main node load changing.

 

Any ideas on this?

 

Thanks and have a great day,

Greetings All,

 

I hope that everyone is has been doing well.

 

We have been testing OpenSSI on our small cluster to see how it performs and thus far, it has done pretty well with only a few problems.

 

One thing that I have not been able to find yet is a way to monitor the cluster and node activity.  I was able to run a demo-proclib application to see who the cluster performs (Thanks Scott) but have yet to find an application that can monitor the cluster for load and stuff like that.

 

I think that in Mosix there is an application that shows the load and processes of each node and probably OpenSSI has the same thing as well.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks and have a great day,
