ABSTRACT – A typical installation of gridMathematica involves a master kernel, a license manager, and one Mathematica kernel per available node. MathLM [REF] the license manager, makes sure that each machine on the cluster is properly licensed. MathLM also provides the necessary passwords needed by the Mathematica nodes. The master kernel handles all input, output, and scheduling. It can be controlled from any Mathematica front end or via batch files, either locally or via a remote connection. Users can launch remote kernels from the master kernel using devices such as RSH or SSH. Once the remote kernels are launched, they are ready to receive commands from the master machine.



A typical installation of gridMathematica with one master kernel and eight computation kernels.The master kernel parallelizes computations, schedules calculations for the computation kernels, and collects the results.
