The Beowulf Distributed Process Space (BProc) is set of kernel modifications, utilities and libraries which allow a user to start processes on other machines in a Beowulf-style cluster. Remote processes started with this mechanism appear in the process table of the front end machine in a cluster. This allows remote process management using the normal UNIX process control facilities. Signals are transparently forwarded to remote processes and exit status is received using the usual wait() mechanisms.

Note:The Sourceforge mailing lists are new. I'm setting up new lists because the old ones are run by Scyld. Run badly. That's the problem really. There are consistently huge delays getting posts through on what I know is a relatively small mailing list. I can see only one plausible explanation for this - somebody is sitting there quietly moderating it. I don't consider this an acceptable situation. The old list archives are available here: http://www.scyld.com/pipermail/bproc/
Note that I will NOT be making any new announcements on the Scyld lists. Furthermore, any postings I make on the Scyld list will be Cc'ed to the new list as well.
I appologize for the inconvenience changes like this cause.
