Presented by: Yash Gurung, ICFAI UNIVERSITY.Sikkim BUILDING of 3 R'sCLUSTER PARALLEL COMPUTER
Introduction: Parallel computing may be defined as the simultaneous use of several processors to execute a computer program. There two types of parallel architectures Shared memory multiprocessor(SMP) Cluster Parallel Computer
Cluster: A cluster is simply a “stack” of processor machines usually mounted in a rack. The stack is configured such that one machine is designated the head node and a file server node to all the other machines. Client nodes technically known as slave nodes are connected, via an internal network
Literature Review Bewulf Cluster Project: was started at the Center of Excellence in Space Data and Information Sciences NASA in early 1994.
Hardware Configuration specification : One Master Node: Two Pentium III 1GHz CPU, 512M RAM, three 3Com 3c905c Ethernet cards, one 30G bytes hard disk, one floppy, one VGA card, one monitor One NFS and NFS Root Server Node: Two Pentium III 1GHz CPU, 512M RAM, two 3Com 3c905c Ethernet cards, one 30G bytes hard disk, one floppy, one VGA card, one monitor 11 Client Nodes: One Pentium III 1GHz CPU, 512M RAM, two 3Com 3c905c Ethernet cards, no hard disk, one floppy, one VGA cards (for debugging) 2 Hubs D-Link DES-1016R, D-Link DFE-916DX
Software Configuration specification : Operating system: Red Hat 6.2 Network booting: Etherboot-4.0 Parallel computing: Message Passing Interface mpich-1.2.1
Figure 2: Example of Cluster Computer SUGAR cluster.
SUGAR CLUSTER: The Syracuse group has constructed a 320 CPU node parallel computer called the SUGAR cluster. It consists of Head nodes: 6 Sun X2200-M2 computers, each containing two Dual-Core AMD Opteron 2.6 GHz processors Compute nodes: Eighty servers each with one quad core Intel 2.4 GHz Xeon CPU and 8 Gb of RAM provide a total of 320 CPU cores and 640 Gb of RAM for the cluster Cluster storage is provided by four file servers, each with 24 Tb of disk storage
The compute nodes and head nodes are connected via copper gigabit Ethernet (1000baseT)to a switch.
ALICE CLUSTER: a cluster of 64 dual-processor Pentium Pros running at 200 MHz All PCs are connected through a central Fast Ethernet switch In addition, there is a master node, a file server, and 4 development nodes.
Methodology: 1. Survey and Collection of functional hardware and both software components from various sources. 2. Assembling of the components into a functional unit. 3. Designing a layout for the final product. 4. Loading of necessary Softwares. 5. Analysis and testing of the product.
Expected results: High Performance. Expandability. High Throughput. High Availability
Conclusion: It is certain that building a new computer by recyling the out of use hardware product, will invite lot of problems regarding the various issues that are related with the designing, implenting etc. But it is still encouraging to construct a working computer then not to use it all.
