Cool Seti on multiple machines.


Hi friends, Sean Moores here. I was wondering if anyone has tried this and could offer any advice: I have 6 various spare motherboards/chip/ram combos I want to run seti on. My main machine is on redhat 7 and seti client. I want to setup all the spares as seti processing mahines without video or harddrives or anything. Is there a way to use the 'wake on lan' and a small linux download to run seti on these machines, and have them upload thru the network ?

Yes, this is a total newbie question, but hey, im willing to learn!!!

well if you're willing to learn the hard way, why not make a linux cluster (see http://tldp.org ) and then everything you do on those machines will be spread across them all... there's no WOL support or such like AFAIK

Yes, a seti cluster seems a good idea. Clusters work best when they're build with similar machines, so performance won't be perfect, but it's worth it to try.

Thanks Acid_Kewpie,
Can you run a cluster with 1 main server, and the rest have no video/kbd/mouse?
I have been looking at beowolf and the other clusters, but I didnt know if thats how they were operated.

Thanks Again,
Sean

One more question. Clusters distribute the load right? Well, Seti is not written to be run by multiprocessors. Rather, one instance per processor. Is that possible in a cluster?

Thanks A Million, You All are Great!

You can run as many instances of seti as you wish. I've seen set running on multiprocessor machines (and it was faster that on a single processor), so I suppose it'll use a cluster, too.
