How to use with distributed memory

Postby sivamani » Tue Jun 22, 2010 3:29 am

Hi,
I am running an intensive fortran program. I want to parallelize it. But my cluster has only 8 processors which shares memory. How to use this program so that i can use it for an other shared memory device of other 8 processors.

You need some kind of software that makes your cluster look like a shared memory machine. OpenMP does not address distributed memory programming. You could, of course, use OpenMP+MPI.
