Christine's Journal - 24 June 1997

I'm not doing what I thought I would be doing. I thought I was going to be working with an Oracle Database, but I'll actually be working with machine clustering, and clustering software. I have to create clusters (install the clustering software on some of the crays), write notes as I go along to facilitate a "novices guide to installing cluster software." After they're set up I'll test them out and use them for demos and stuff. I might get to test the scaling of the clusters, depending on if I have enough time. I'm really excited about this, I would have liked to work with Oracle, and learn Perl; but I'd rather do really cool stuff like this. I have accounts on four Origin2000s. They are way fast.
