Researchers: Al Geist, Jim Kohl, Stephen Scott

How can I scale my cluster administrator (without leaving scars)?

ORNL researchers are developing toolkits to standardize and simplify the administration of distributed clusters.

Open Source Cluster Application Resources (OSCAR)

The "cluster-on-a-CD" - self loading best available open source technology for Beowolf clusters.

Linux Utility for cluster Install (LUI)

Developed as IBM Open Source project. Used in OSCAR to build cluster configuration. Handles heterogeneous nodes within the cluster.

Managing and Monitoring Multiple Clusters (M3C)

Web based interface into your cluster computing environments. Able to handle multiple clusters simultaneous.

Cluster Command and Control (C3)

Linux like command line based tools that present single and multiple clusters as a single computing entity.
