Where should the "machines.LINUX" file be located?

Where should the "machines.LINUX" file be located?

I am a beginner of parallel computation. I wish to build up a linux cluster with Intel Cluster Tool Kits. I found that I need to create a "machines.LINUX" file, which isused by the Intel Cluster Toolkit installer to deploy the appropriate software packages from the toolkit amongst the nodes of the cluster.

I would like to know where should the "machines.LINUX" file be located. Any people can help me?

Many Thanks!

Hi Kelvin,

There is no designated location for the machines.LINUX file. The file should simply contain a list of all nodes on your cluster. For example:

[user@cluster ~]$ cat machines.LINUX

Generally, you can put it in the same directory as the install script and just point the installer to it when prompted.
