Supercomputing research–the goal of which is to make computers that are
ever faster and more powerful–has been at the cutting edge of computer technology
since the early 1960s. Until recently, research cost in the millions of dollars, and
many of the companies that originally made supercomputers are now out of
business.The early supercomputers used distributed computing and parallel processing
to link processors together in a single machine, often called a mainframe.
Exploiting the same technology, researchers are now using off-the-shelf PCs to
produce computers with supercomputer performance. It is now possible to make a
supercomputer for less than $40,000. Given this new affordability, a number of
universities and research laboratories are experimenting with installing such
Beowulf-type systems in their facilities.This how-to guide provides step-by-step
instructions for building a Beowulf-type computer, including the physical elements
that make up a clustered PC computing system, the software required (most of which
is freely available), and insights on how to organize the code to exploit
parallelism. The book also includes a list of potential pitfalls.
