An efficient framework for distributed computing in heterogeneous beowulf clusters and cluster-management

  • In the context of existing approaches to cluster computing we present a newly developed modular framework `SimpleHydra' for rapid deployment and management of Beowulf clusters. Instead of focusing only the pure computation tasks on homogeneous clusters (i.e. clusters with identically set up nodes), this framework aims to ease the configuration of heterogeneous clusters and to provide a low-level / high-level object-oriented API for low-latency distributed computing. Our framework does not make any restrictions regarding the hardware and minimizes the use of external libraries to the case of special modules. In addition to that our framework enables the user to develop highly dynamic cluster topologies. We describe the framework's general structure as well as time critical elements, give application examples in the `Big-Data' context during a research project and briefly discuss additional features. Furthermore we give a thorough theoretical time/space complexity analysis of our implemented methods and general approaches.
