Information about Rocks Cluster Distribution 6.2

Rocks is a complete "cluster on a CD" solution for x86 and x86_64 Red Hat Linux clusters. Building a Rocks cluster does not require any experience in clustering, yet a cluster architect will find a flexible and programmatic way to redesign the entire software stack just below the surface (appropriately hidden from the majority of users). Although Rocks includes the tools expected from any clustering software stack (PBS, Maui, GM support, Ganglia, etc), it is unique in its simplicity of installation.

Philip Papadopoulos has announced the release of Rocks Cluster Distribution 6.2, the latest stable version of the project's CentOS-based specialist distribution designed for building real and virtual clusters: "The latest update of Rocks, code name Sidewinder, is now released. Sidewinder is a 64-bit only release and is based upon CentOS 6.6. The Rocks-supplied OS rolls have all updates applied as of May 10, 2015. Support for ZFS has been updated to version 0.6.4.1. Condor is now the HTCondor roll release 8.2.8. Also included is support for perfSONAR where cluster builders can decide to install the full GUI (recommended for a standalone perfSONAR host) or just the command tools. Customizing what is installed for perfSONAR gives four attributes that control which elements of perfSONAR are installed on hosts. New to 6.2 is the ability to reconfigure the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of your cluster. There are some caveats to the process. When building a frontend on networks with jumbo frames, the cluster builder can specify the MTU on the 'build' command line.
