From ComputeMode
Jump to: navigation, search

Computemode agents are available for Windows (checked on Windows 7) and Linux (package available for Debian Squeeze 64 bit-mode). The Linux and Windows agents are software to install on a node. Those software checks periodically if the node has to reboot on the computation mode querying the computemode schedulers on the server.

How to install the Linux agent

cat <<EOF > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/computemode.list
deb ./
apt-get update
apt-get install cm-unixagent

A cron task will be installed on the node and it will check every 5 minutes if the node has to enter into the computing domain.

How to install the Windows agent

  • To install the windows agent, get the zip archive:
  • Unzip the file into a directory
  • You must edit cm_pxe.cmd to set CMSERVER to your LAN IP address of the ComputeMode server.
  • You can configure the environment variable MAC if you have several network cards. This variable configure which one of your network card will be used to contact the computemode server.
  • Launch a "command line" with administrators rights
  • On the extracted directory, just execute the following command: install_cm_agent.bat
