  • 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.


    Given a populated database (see the Data Collection chapter), Intel® Cluster Checker analyzes the data to identify issues, diagnose the problems, and in some cases, provide recommendations on how to repair the cluster. Invoke the clck-analyze program to perform the analysis. The analysis evaluates the collected data using an embedded expert system.

    Getting Started

    Before using Intel® Cluster Checker for the first time, the runtime environment must be set up. Two files are included to set up the runtime environment, for shells with Bourne syntax and clckvars.csh for shells with csh syntax. Type
