mlwin on a cluster

Post by as3601 »

Hi Guys,
I am thinking of moving my work on to a cluster? I was wondering if you have had any experience of using runmlwin in a cluster environment? I think the greatest benefits occur when the process are written for paraellel processors. has mlwin be written this way or is it mainly a serial beast.

cheers

I believe that some people do use MLwiN in this way, but I have no direct experience in doing this. MLwiN does not use multiple processors, so the best way of taking advantage of this environment would be to run several copies of MLwiN in parallel.
