Objectives, implementation and utilization
Remote boot, diskless support
Na60pc08 is our cluster's disk server:
A single process, like a macro, is NOT going to be shared among all computers. Each process goes to one CPU only.
CERN/IT does not support Gentoo based OS. Our IT experts will be the only ones solving the problems.
The previous data from the machines is kept, meaning that we always have a fallback option.
In principle we can run as many processes as the number of CPUs we have.
Node 1 (diskless)
Node 10 (OS on local disk)
