Warewulf — The Warewulf Cluster Toolkit


About Warewulf
English (USA)

Warewulf is a cluster implementation toolkit that facilitates the process of installing a cluster and long term administration. It does this by changing the administration paradigm to make all of the slave node file systems manageable from one point, and automate the distribution of the node file system during node boot. It allows a central administration model for all slave nodes and includes the tools needed to build configuration files, monitor, and control the nodes. It is totally customizable and can be adapted to just about any type of cluster. From the software administration perspective it does not make much difference if you are running 2 nodes or 500 nodes. The procedure is still the same, which is why Warewulf is scalable from the admins perspective. Also, because it uses a standard chroot’able file system for every node, it is extremely configurable and lends itself to custom environments very easily.

I would like to thank the cAos project for hosting the Warewulf mailing list!
