The Commonly Used Toolkit Approach
  • Most cluster management solutions use the
    toolkit approach (Linux distro tools)
  • Examples Most customer in-house solutions most
    competing products
  • Tools typically used Ganglia, Cacti, Nagios,
    Cfengine, System Imager, etc.
  • Issues with the toolkit approach
  • Tools rarely designed to work together
  • Tools rarely designed for HPC
  • Tools rarely designed to scale
  • Each tool has its own command line interface and
    GUI
  • Each tool has its own daemon and database
  • Roadmap dependent on developers of the tools
  • Making a collection of unrelated tools work
    together
  • Requires a lot of expertise and scripting
  • Rarely leads to a truly easy-to-use and scalable
    solution
