Well yes and no. If you wanna run true parallel apps, you'll need PVM, MPI
or some time of scheduler. What my presentation will be different, is that
it will cover openMosix.
OpenMosix is a kernel level (repeat, KERNEL LEVEL) clustering solution. So
ANY (with exceptions) apps will load balance across all nodes. Oh, and you
know what? Mjpegtools is one of many apps that work *WONDERFUL* over
The only apps that WON'T use openMosix are ones with shared memory,
examples are Apache, MySQL, and Postgres. Anything left WILL load balance
across the cluster.
This is why I wanna get this information out because anybody can build
one, and I wasn't joking when I said all you need to do is edit 2 files
and recompile a kernel. Its THAT easy ;)
