Linux HPC Cluster Installation.pdf

This redbook will guide system architects and systems engineers through a basic understanding of cluster technology, terms, and Linux High-Performance Computing (HPC) clusters. We discuss some of the design guidelines used when architecting a solution and on how to install and configure a working Linux HPC cluster.

This redbook documents the building of a Linux HPC cluster on IBM eserver xSeries hardware. Using this approach, and building a type of Beowulf cluster, we can achieve dramatic performance at a fraction of the price of previous solutions.

This redbook will also teach you the concepts and principals needed to build your own HPC cluster. The installation process is streamlined and simplified by the extensive use of scripts. Management tools are provided to easily manage a large number of compute nodes that remotely use the built-in features of Linux and the advanced management capabilities of the IBM eserver xSeries Service Processor Network.
