LANS Informal Seminar
"Parallel computation on bag of workstations using Swift coasters "

DATE: February 29, 2012

TIME: 15:00:00 - 16:00:00
SPEAKER: Ketan Maheshwari, Postdoctoral Appointee, MCS
LOCATION: Building 240, 1404-1405, Argonne National Laboratory

Description:
Swift lets you write parallel scripts that run many copies of ordinary programs concurrently. In this talk we will discuss the Swift coasters framework and its usage to leverage the computational power of bag of workstations commonly found in universities and institutions. We will see a short demonstration on how to exploit the computational resources of MCS workstations with a simple application.
