Whitepaper: Tools and Techniques for Managing Clusters for SciDAC Lattice QCD at Fermilab

by FermilabJan 01, 2008

Fermilab have two SciDAC (Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing) funded Linux clusters, a 48-node and 128-node Xeon cluster and an 80-node Pentium III cluster. They have minimal manpower available for administrating these clusters. The authors have written tools and developed techniques that enable them to remotely administrate and automate repeated tasks to monitor these clusters and keep them in production. This paper discusses how the authors integrate all these tools and techniques
