We came to know you through the web.
We are currently working on structure
prediction works. we wrote our own fortaran program to
do this computation. It took long CPU time
to complete this computation in the pentium-
III 650 MHz processor which has linux operating system
and 10 GB hard disk. Each time we have to generate
1000 structures. it can be parallized easily.
so we bought another one pentium III machine
(Exactly same specification as the first PC)
Then we clustered two PCs using pvm as well as
MPI and ordinary external network. we parallesied
our program such as 500 structures calculations to
FIRST PC and another 500 to second PC. Then the
computation time reduced to approximately half.
We are happy about this. here the input data stored
in both PCs and we distribute only the
when staring the computation and only at the end of
computation. so, the less communication only used
results needed for further computation
We have to do lot of research on this same area.
so, we planned to build large beowulf computer(may
be with more than 16 processor). however, we have
bit experience as stated above. we don't know exactly
are harwares and softwares to be buy to build such a
computer. Unfortunately, no person around our place to
contact about this.
So, could you please guide us, what are things we have
to buy to build such a beowulf computer, which is
applicaple to our work (as stated above).
we have the fund for this around $63,000 from our
I think these informations are enough for you to
guide us, or if you have doubt about us(regarding the
above, please free to contact.
so, could you please give us the complete list of
and softwares to build beowulf computer(may be with
If you can't give this, please show us a person, whom
contact regarding this.
the uncommercial help or the prebuilt beowulf most
waiting for your reply.
