Re: How to use adjoining/remote computer's resources to share my program load?

Alex Granovsky


it is possible provided computers are connected
by sufficiently fast network e.g. Gigabit Ethernet.

First, you need to install some implementation of MPI on these
computers e.g. I can suggest MSMPI or NT-MPICH in the case you
are using Windows.

Second, you need to learn how to run programs in parallel using
MPI you have installed.

Third, if you are using Windows you need to read the document
on Firefly to MPI bindings:

and links therein.

Otherwise, read this document

as well as links therein.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
Alex Granovsky
