ClusterMonkey: Putting your cluster to work on parallel tasks.
In our previous installment, we started out by learning how to use pretty much an arbitrary Linux LAN as the simplest sort of parallel compute cluster. In this column we continue our hands-on approach to learning about clusters and play with our archetypical parallel task on our starter cluster to learn when it runs efficiently and just as important, when it runs inefficiently.
