BProc: Beowulf Distributed Process Space

Welcome to the BProc project home page.

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.
