Tutorial: XCBC using LittleFe and the Limulus HPC200

For this tutorial, we wish to demonstrate building practical XSEDE Compatible Basic Clusters (XCBC) while showing that an XCBC need not be an expensive resource to be useful. One secondary goal is showing the basic process of installing Rocks on a “bare metal” system from start to finish, ultimately running a basic multi node job that will demonstrate the abilities of such a system. The next secondary goal is to show using Yum and RPMs developed by XSEDE to create an XCBC. Also, we want to demonstrate the value of using a small local cluster to pilot and prototype research in order to better prepare for requesting allocations on national XSEDE resources. An additional goal is to inspire those that may have limited system administration resources and/or limited budgets into finding ways to develop clusters to meet their needs for experimentation or for smaller research jobs that might not otherwise get time on XSEDE systems. Lastly, we will cover the basics of management for small clusters, getting started and managing users effectively.
