Building a High-performance Computing Cluster Using FreeBSD
Brooks Davis, Michael AuYeung, Gary Green, and Craig Lee, The Aerospace Corporation
In this paper we discuss the design and implementation of Fellowship,
a 300+ CPU, general use computing cluster based on FreeBSD. We address
the design features including configuration management, network booting
of nodes, and scheduling which make this cluster unique and how FreeBSD
helped (and hindered) our efforts to make this design a reality.
