Research and Development
Many companies own a massively parallel computing system without realising it. A survey pointed out that at a large company with many workstations, 75% of the time those workstations do not work at all. If only this idle time could be used productively ... The European project Dynamite aimed to provide the software and the method to let those workstations work interactively when needed and to use their spare time for massively parallel computer tasks. To realise this, the workstations have to be monitored constantly and every change in workload will have to result in a different distribution of the computer tasks at hand.
