Getting information about cluster nodes and display it RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using HPC SDK to get the status of the Cluster, I can find information like Number of nodes, Number of Cores on each node and memory usage, However i would like to be able to get information about how much each core is being utilized (e.g. heat map display in the HPC Cluster manager). How can i do that?

    Thanks in advance for the help

  • Hi Mehul,

    Take a look at the PerformanceCounter class. That should provide the same type of performance counter information we use for our heat map. Basically, with the PerformanceCoutner class you can connect to a remote machine and read performance counters. How you display those counters is up to you.

    Here's a link to MSDN documentation: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.diagnostics.performancecounter(VS.71).aspx

  • Thanks Ryan,
                       This helps, however the performance of PerformanceCounter class is really slow, do we have any other option?
