As for Mosix I am likely putting my foot in my mouth, as I never used
Steve, not at all.
In fact I thought I was putting my foot in my mouth.
That's what discussion lists are for.
I have always liked Mosix, and have followed it.
One of our customers uses Mosix on his cluster, as it is a 'fire and
forget' solution, and he doesn't want the fuss of a batch system.
For him, it works marvellously.
On the Beowulf list recently, there was a post from someone from SAP
(I think) asking about migrating vmware images. Interesting...
Sadly they don't migrate. Only certain processes migrate - have
a look at the Mosix wiki.
And my remarks about the Linux kernel are based on something I rad
once about Linus saying he would never have it in the kernel.
