i try to explain what we need :-)
we have 8 servers with 10-20 vservers on each.... and it would be great to
have one big cluster with 100 vservers in it....
in each vserver there are one or two processes which needs a lot cpu power.
the idea would be to have one big file server where the /vservers directory
is located and 8 nodes which do the cpu intensive stuff...
now processes in another context than 0 are not migrateable.... we need no
quota stuff nor special filesystem functions.... but i dont know how much
work it is to do the context (etc...) port to the openmosix system.
at the moment we are setting up a test cluster with 3 systems and it would
be possible to develop the vserver stuff on it...
