Basically cluster_info only gets added to each node by vcld if there is an image with subimages defined. > > Sorry is the first time I am instaling a HPC enviroment, if you have a good > guide let me know:) An HPC environment is typically using a parallel batch processing job scheduler, like LSF (Load Sharing Facility), or MOAB for commercial schedulers, open-src schedulers Condor, Maui, Torque. Here is a link for overviews: http://hpc-opinion.blogspot.com/2011/07/job-schedulers-overview.html So you may want to check out each of those related sites for guides, etc. We use LSF here at NCSU with ~850 nodes. As far as clusters within VCL, one could really build anything, but what we've seen the most are researchers building hadoop clusters, a distributed LAMP stack for a class, or SAS BI environment. Hope this info helps.
