Haw to find Distribution?

 Hello All,
Anybody, tell me please, where can I find Free BSD Cluster Disribution?

Robert..

I haven't heard of a *BSD Cluster Distribution.  I think most BSD folks
build up a cluster the way Linux users used to, by installing various
packages themselves as needed.  If your looking for a BSD equivalent to
something like Oscar <http://oscar.sf.net> I've haven't ever seen one.
The good news, a lot of the parts from Oscar, minus the System
Installation Suite, could be used after downloading, installing and
configuring them yourself.  They also might be in ports, but I haven't
looked.

Hi,

I don't know what to think this way because you have left out my
offering, which has been here for some time.  Look at some of the
old posts.

More specifically go to Google and put in "freebsd clustering"  
here is the outcome:

hi Andy,

we'd love to help test! I'll get it going sometime next week, after I
make it through a new product release  ;)

also, Brooks and I did a brief segment on clustering on TechTV a little
while ago. I know Brooks mentioned doing a 'how to', but I don't believe
he's had the time.

Re: Haw to find Distribution?

Andy :)

The old adage holds true "ask and you shall receive" I have been working
towards generating a TOR - functional specification for a PVFS and dual
head end scenario. The system will be dealing with Neflow traffic coming
off of 2 gigabyte links.

I will be keeping my log book well and truly up to date and will have
time to generate some form of HowTo.

Out of interest would it be worthwhile establishing a channel on
freenode so as we can all correspond .. live as it where ?

#bsd-cluster ???

or otherwise

yours a.r.b.

Clustering with FreeBSD

Hi,

It is a different subject and I sort of hate threads that are misleading.

So far it hasn't happened yet, but before it can.  :-)  The clustering that
I am offering is *NOT* Beowulf-like.  It is more geared towards
Internet Application HA.    In other words--server X dies, what should
server Y and Z do to make sure that the stuff on server X does not have
to wait for server X to recover.

Somewhere else on my site I have a utility called FREP.  In my test
area in my lab I have the two things integrated.  

There is in Linux-Land a thing called sometime like "Remote raw
disk" (can't remember specifically what it is called) but it gives a
local device node for a remote device on another machine.

What FREP does (at the moment only in the lab) is to syncronize
access to directories and replicate the changes done by the nodes.
The idea is to be able to have a 2-3 nodes running mail servers with
the spool directories replicated (locking is on the file basis).  A
load balancer goes on the front and with this you have a scalabale
Mail server that is fault resiliant.

A lot of people in the academic community are worried about
Beowulf and for correct reason, but there is an often neglected area
which is where Micro$oft is winning in the moment and that is
in the business end of the house.

Cheers.

Re: Clustering with FreeBSD

What are the thoughts of DragonFlyBSD's goal of being able to create a
single virtual machine (1 cpu, presumably) out of many individual boxes?

I didn't know that was a goal for dragonfly - but if it really is, I'm 
excited about that too.. is that vaporware, or has code writing begun 
for that?
