Clusters of PC containing mostly general purpose hardware have become more and more usable for high performance computing tasks in the past few years. Clustering existing systems or extending cluster installations leads to the problem of inhomogeneous cluster installations with a broad variety of hardware and even operating systems. This paper describes the(More)
Cluster systems built mainly from commodity hardware components have become more and more usable for high performance computing tasks in the past few years. To increase the parallelism for applications, it is often desirable to combine those clusters to a higher lever, commonly called metacomputer. This class of high performance computing platforms can be(More)
There are many underlying hardware architectures for execution of parallel applications. One of these is the Network of Workstations (NOW) which is an interesting solution for users who want to reuse existing hardware for parallel processing. The use of this architecture leads to special demands concerning the generation and start of MPIapplications. The(More)
