Title A review of commodity cluster management tools
Abstract A cluster is a group of computers that are linked together to form a single system. A commodity cluster uses “off-the-shelf”, conventional, pc server hardware. Clusters are used to solve or model large complex problems which would otherwise be difficult or impossible to run on current high specification computers. There is a wide range of available tools that can be used to manage clusters; these include open source tools as well as commercial ones. We carried out a review of the most commonly used cluster management tools, considering areas such as functionality, ease of use, and installation. Finally we drew some conclusions about their relative merits.
