1 Switch Aquario 8 Ports 10/100

Software:

@Cluster
Op. System: Linux Debian Wheezy (Raspbian)
MPICH-2
gcc

@Development_Station
Op. System: Linux Debian Wheezy
Distibution: JA AntiX 13.1 32 bit
Netbeans for C++/Fortran
gcc

Story Board

1-3
After having installed the ISO Raspbian image, the installation of MPICH-2 was performed in 2 MicroSD Cards.

4 - 5
The first 2 Raspiberry Pi s were arranged in a small and lightweight Rack, made with Plastic and mini Standoff screws.

6 - 7
Some adjustments were made in the Network Configuration and software, before the first test runs in the cluster.

8 - 11
First tests on cluster (with success ... it works ! )

12 - 13
The first two units are arranged with newer 3 Raspberry Pi boards in a new rack .
( This set was never even tested, as they reached over two new boards ... )

14-19
The cluster with the 7 Raspberry Pi boards is first executed, successfully, and is made the shutdown of the units remotely, through the development station.

20-24
Keyboard and display extras are removed , and the first run is taken from the Development Station.

25-26
Cross-compilation test between Station Development, running Netbeans, and the Jaguatirica Cluster Node 00 ...
And the order of chaos with the network cables ...

27-30
Here, the test shutdown of work nodes, the cluster administration activities that are repeated are automated by shell scripts .
And the cluster received the power cord definitive. ( Because the ancients were borrowed from other machines ! )

Development Environment to Cross-Compiling

Post by laoliveirajr » Fri Apr 11, 2014 3:17 am

Development Environment to Cross-Compiling

One of the best surprises of the creation of the development environment was the setting of the remote host to cross-compile.
After defining which host where the build occurs, Netbeans automatically detect the settings of the tool colection on the remote host.
Image

It is shown below, the output of the cross-compilation by the Raspberry Pi.
Image

In the terminal Netbeans is possible to run the compiled application from the remote terminal.
Image

In the terminal of the development tool can also perform activities in localhost.
