parallel computation
does anyone know how to set up a parallel computation with two computers?

does parallel computaion must using two the same computers[the same cpu rate ] to deal with?

ask if there are several procedures we can follow. thank for help~

Re: parallel computation
where are you from? american . i don't think anyone will call you an american if you can not even conduct a parallel computation.

you can follow the user guide of the FLUENT comercial software

Re: parallel computation
parallel computation run; involving two different computers is not that easy for first time users, and very important everybody is not extraordinary like you!

Re: parallel computation
I'm also trying to achieve the same. So, how?

Re: parallel computation
You may try to consider your two computers as a (small) cluster and manage it with MPI.

Re: parallel computation
Ok, this is more details on I want to achieve. I have three computers, networked together. All three are running Windows XP (and yeah, i know XP is not the best option to do this). After I have set everything up, I ran star on one of the pc and here's the last portion of the message I received on the starlaunch window:

C:\WINNT\system32> set PNP_WATCH=0 C:\WINNT\system32> pushd \\acer3\pnp_dir_2005-04-07_16-50-26 Z:\> "\\acer3\star322\lib\loader\star.exe"

Z:\> popd process 2 on Vtc-tr-004 exited without calling MPIFinalize Sending kill commands to launched processes process 0 on Acer3 exited without calling MPIFinalize process 1 on Vtc-tr-002 exited without calling MPIFinalize pnp_dir_2005-04-07_16-50-26 was deleted successfully. PNP: Shutdown [2005-04-07-16:52:47] Execution aborted by request (SIGABRT) after 141 seconds (TOTAL ELAPSED TIME).

What may be the problem? I also shut down the antivirus and Windows Firewall on all three and yet, the problem still prevails. What's next?

All helps are highly appreciated!

Re: parallel computation
What about HPC? Did you try to install it?
