First off, I know these things won't set any records for number crunching, that is not the point.
So, why a cluster? For my soon to be 7 year old son. We just watched Contact tonight. So, he is pretty excited about SETI. Now, I could just spin up a PC and get it going for him, but I thought a RPi project would be more fun. I have an extra 5 port switch laying around, so thought a cluster would be fun. Plan to have him involved in the build.
So, the question becomes, how does BOINC and [email protected]
handle clusters on Pi? I tried setting up a cluster years ago, but would need to find documentation on it again. If clusters are not supported, I guess I can set up the same sort of thing but run them independently. What would be the recommended version of the RPi be for running this?
Thoughts and suggestions would be great. As I said, a cluster is not s must. If nothing else I will get a few boards and run them as independent units. But, I would like to do a cluster again if possible.
