Intel® Cluster Checker

Data Collection

Before Intel® Cluster Checker can identify issues, it must first gather data from the cluster. Intel® Cluster Checker uses providers to collect data from the system and stores that data in a database. Framework definitions determine what data to collect by defining a set of data providers to run.

Knowledge Base

Intel® Cluster Checker is an expert system. A classic definition of an expert system is "an intelligent computer program that uses knowledge and inference procedures to solve problems that are difficult enough to require significant human expertise for their solutions" (Edward A. Feigenbaum, "Knowledge Engineering in the 1980s", Stanford University Computer Science Department, 1982). The problem that Intel® Cluster Checker solves is diagnosing system-level issues with Beowulf style clusters.

Clusters are complex systems, and it can be difficult to identify issues when something goes wrong. Intel® Cluster Checker aims to reduce this complexity barrier and make debugging easier. It collects data from the cluster, analyzes that data, and produces a clear list of found issues. Using Intel® Cluster Checker, you can resolve issues quickly and move on to actually using your cluster.
