Linux Cluster Management:
Built and maintained a processor Pentium III PC cluster with Giganet/VIA and
Ethernet interconnects running Red Hat Linux . and ..
Used and modified kickstart scripts to automate the installation process.
Ported the Giganet/VIA driver to Linux kernel ...
Installed and configured Ganglia monitoring tool.
Developed test programs to benchmark the cluster based on computing power,
communication latency/bandwidth and other metrics.
Updated OS from Red Hat . to Red Hat . and resolved related libraries and
software configurations conflicts.
Provided support for multiple cluster users through resolving software and
hardware issues and through the setup of new user accounts.
Automated tasks across cluster nodes, node status monitoring, and backup
Used ipchains/iptables packet filtering to enhance cluster security.
Cluster Management Software and Security
Installed and configured OpenPBS, Condor, Maui, and Cluster Controller resource
Benchmarked and evaluated the various cluster resource managers systems
based on overhead, throughput, ease of use, as well as other metrics.
