Test a HPC Cluster RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    i have a newly installed HPC Cluster with 5 nodes.
    Can i use a simple script to test the cluster? A little job perhaps? I can't find anything.

  • Hi Andreas
    Two things you might try:
    1. If you haven't already, run the diagnostics built in to the HPC Pack 
    2. Installing and running Lizard is a good way to get things warmed up

  • Yes, Lizard is a good choice but you have to configure it properly, so read a papers about it (not a standard realization but MS).
    My experience of work with Lizard without tweaking its internal variables was not so good - i had a problem with a network interfaces so i needed to restart them (because it was so huge amount of traffic with standard values of internal variables for mine 4 test nodes).

    Good luck.
