It is the goal of the Triton Resource developers to make available to interested parties all technical details of the construction of this resource. The procedure, links and downloads on this page are intended to assist in reaching that goal.
Please inquire on the Triton Discuss mailing list for more technical details and guidance. You can join Triton Discuss on our Support Page.
The outline below provides general guidelines for the building and installation of a cluster like the Triton Resource. Triton is an example of a Rocks Cluster and uses CentOS (derived from Red Hat Enterprise Linux) as its base Operating System. Complete instructions for building Rocks Clusters are available on the Rocks Web site. The information on this page supplements those instructions with details specific to installation of the Triton Resource.
If you would like more detailed information, or if you have questions on a particular part of this process, please join our discussion mailman list (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will correspond with you on this topic. The Triton Discussion list is a direct connection to the Triton system administrators.
Login and compute nodes are installed normally, as described in the Rocks 5.4 Base Roll Users Guide [external]. The login node is an extension of the standard Rocks installation. This component is useful on Triton to separate the multitude of users preparing, starting, and monitoring jobs from the compute nodes and the management node, which supports user logins on a typical Rocks system.
The following archives are available for download as part of the Build Your Own Triton Cluster procedure. These rolls are available for the TRITON_RC4 release as of August 18, 2011. Rolls for RC3 are available from the RC3 Downloads page. Previous Triton release rolls are no longer available.
