Maple Grid Computing Toolbox
The Maple Grid Computing Toolbox enables you to run Maple computations in parallel, taking advantage of all your hardware resources, cutting down on processing time, and enabling applications that were not possible before.
With the Maple Grid Computing Toolbox, you can distribute computations across the nodes of a network of workstations, a supercomputer or, the CPUs of a multiprocessor computer. This allows you to handle problems that are not tractable on a single machine because of memory limitations or because it would simply take too long.
The Grid Computing Toolbox is very easy to set up. It can connect directly into your existing Windows® HPC Server cluster without the need to set up services on each node. You can also start a server process on each computer on a network and the grid will self-assemble as each node automatically detects the other nodes that are present. The Grid Computing Toolbox also integrates into existing job scheduling systems such as PBS.
The Grid Computing Toolbox includes a personal grid server, allowing you to simulate a grid with any number of nodes on your desktop computer. You can develop and test your parallel applications before running them on the real grid.
In order to perform distributed computations, the Grid Computing Toolbox offers a variety of tools:
