Title: starting ppserver nodes remotely
Post by: Oronis on February 06, 2009, 03:08:11 AM
I'm using parallel python to do cluster computing. I'm trying to find a way to automatically start the nodes on the various cluster pc's.
I've seen two possible solutions to this problem, the first is to setup ppserver as an autostarting windows service, which looks like a fairly involved process in and of itself.
The second is to use some remote access method and start the various nodes when my client starts. This would seem a less work intensive scheme, but I admit I wouldn't have the slightest clue how.
The pc's I'm trying to use to cluster are running Windows 2000. I've seen some older posts about using ssh to log into a machine and start the code remotely, but I'm not sure if that's possible with a windows os?
Anyway, any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.
