* Headline: Alpha + Linux = Supercomputer For Less
Researchers at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, New Mexico have built a supercomputer called Avalon, consists of 68 computers with Alpha CPUs, networked together with Fast EtherNet and running the Linux operating suystem.
It runs at 19.2 Gflops per second, ranking it as the 315th fastest supercomputer in the world, which is performance comparable to a 64-processor Origin 2000 from Silicon Graphics The Origin 200 has a list price of $1.8 million, but the Alpha + Linux Avalon cost only $150,000 ! I'll take 10 then!!! ;-)

Other Linux Documents

* UK Linux User Groups
Home page for the Linux Users Groups within the UK.
* The LinuxThreads library
LinuxThreads is an implementation of the Posix 1003.1c thread package for Linux.
Unlike other implementations of Posix threads, LinuxThreads provides kernel-level threads: threads are created with the new clone() system call and all scheduling is done in the kernel.
* LinuxThreads FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions (with answers) about the LinuxThreads library. Includes the all important questions about "Problems, weird behaviors, potential bugs" and how to go about "Debugging LinuxThreads programs"!
Provides a good primer for writing a multithreaded program using any threads library on any platform, not just on Linux.
* Doom as a tool for system administration
If you're using Linux you can use a Doom front end to kill processes running on the system. Processes are represented as new soldiers that you can wound or kill.
According to the author, this type of interface has several benefits that include: "The machine load is immediately apparent to the player, who can see how crowded a room is", "A new sysadmin can be given less power by providing her with a smaller weapon", and "Sysadmins could cooperate or compete".
* Java, threads, and scheduling in Linux
Patching the kernel scheduler for better Java performance. This paper examines the performance of the Linux kernel when the system is running the Java program using the IBM Developer Kit for Linux, Java Technology Edition, Version 1.1.8.
* Linux on Laptops
This is an index of information and documentation of interest to those who now use or are considering using the Linux operating system on a notebook or laptop computer.
