I am new to the Beowulf cluster scene of Linux, and was about to try
to set up a cluster in my basement. My question for the gurus here is
what angle should I go for a heterogeneous cluster of machines? Like
Openmosix, or whatnot. Here are some system specifics
The front-end node node will be a 667 mhz Pentium 3, 64 mb of RAM, and
20 gig hard disk.
Another machine, node 1 will be a 350 mhz Pentium 2, 110 mb of RAM,
and a 5 gig hard disk.
Final node is just about identical to node 1 except it has 64 mb of RAM.
I know this is not a high performance cluster by any means, but I
would like to try and make a cluster, and I like Gentoo's flexibility,
but need to know if it is the best for my cluster setup.
Any opinions appreciated!
