Sorry for the delay, Christian. We've been busy preparing for the 1.0
Most of the OpenSSI development so far has been down in the kernel,
doing things like writing the layered Cluster File System (CFS),
clusterizing devices and IPC (signals, message queues, semaphores,
shared memory, pipes, fifos, sockets, etc.), integrating the process and
TCP connection load levelers, porting to other architectures (Alpha and
IA64), adding high-availability features (such as HA-CFS and HA-LVS),
and other myriad details of coordinating multiple machines to behave
like a single machine. Little effort to date has been put into
developing or porting pretty user interfaces for cluster management.
Doing this kind of stuff would be a great way for user-mode developers
to contribute to the OpenSSI project.
I haven't had much experience with running applications on OpenSSI
clusters (other than simple test programs). I know other contributors on
the list have looked at how they can use OpenSSI clusters in a
production environment. If any of you are at liberty to discuss what
you're doing, we'd love to hear about it!
