Building a Beowulf Cluster/Parallelization of computation/PVM
The Parallel Virtual Machine (PVM) allows computers which are connected over a network to be used as a single distributed parallel computer.
Installation of PVM is straightforward from packages, for configuration environment variables need to be set up:
add to /etc/profile:
In the pvm environment (which you enter typing 'pvm') after adding your machines you can then try the following and see if you can get a list of your machines.
spawn -> -10 /bin/hostname
