OGE/SGE Clustering

Postby steve-r » Thu Jun 21, 2012 5:23 pm

Can someone explain to me what benefits there are to a Rocks/SGE cluster over having the same machines just in a SGE cluster?

I'm trying to build a cluster of CentOS workstations in such a way that a job sent to them using OGE/SGE is processed faster than if it was sent to an individual machine.

I already have all the machines in my office in a OGE (2011.11) grid, which is all well and good, but I want to combine (cluster) machines to improve performance.

One suggestion was to use a SSI (Single System Image) cluster using kerrighed, but I couldn't get it to compile with CentOS 5.

Any advice would be gratefully received.
