Evaluation of Cluster Middleware in a Heterogeneous Computing Environment

language = {english},
abstract = {Deploying a Beowulf-type high-performance cluster is a challenging task. Many problems,regarding the underlying hardware infrastructure and the used software components need to besolved in order to make a set of machines work as a single computer. The task becomes even morecomplicated when heterogeneous commodity hardware platforms are utilized. This research isprovoked by the idea of using a company’s old desktop computers for achieving computingperformance at a low cost. While the existing cluster middleware provides many solutions forutilizing distributed resources, it still fails to be suitable for some cluster setups. This thesisrepresents the results of an evaluation in the field of heterogeneous high-performance computing. Asystematic analysis of available tools for high-performance clustering aims to reveal both theirstrong and their weak sides. In addition, a detailed evaluation is provided from the point of view ofadministrators and users. The thesis describes the process of building a fully-functioning parallelenvironment using three different tools for cluster deployment - OSCAR v6.0.2, ROCKS v5.1 andCAOS-NSA v 1.0. These tools are compared in detail, so that the most suitable one can bedetermined. As a result two test environments are built. Numerous examples of tests runs, executedon the two environments, are described. Usability, with regards to different tools like resourcemanagers, schedulers, and MPI, is assessed taking into consideration the underlying hardwareplatforms. The capabilities of the clusters are evaluated against a parallel application for routeoptimization.},

This may assist the porting of otherapplications to the grid using these middleware products.},

abstract = {SEE-GRID is based on the SEE++ software system for the biomechanical simulation of the human eye. The goal of SEE-GRID is to extend SEE++ in several steps in order to develop an efficient grid-based tool for “Evidence Based Medicine”, which supports surgeons in choosing optimal surgery techniques for the treatment of certain eye motility disorders. First, we have developed a grid-enabled version of the simulation of the Hess-Lancaster test, which is a medical examination by which the pathology of the patient can be estimated. Based on this, we work on a pathology fitting algorithm that attempts to give sufficiently close estimations for the pathological reasons of the disorder.Furthermore, we have started to develop a grid enabled distributed database where both realand simulated pathological cases can be collected, sorted and evaluated for improving both the laterpathology fitting calculations and the future medical treatments.},
