i’m involved in a big maxmsp/jitter project, where a lot of jitter + msp
patches will run at the same time exchanging data with msp+jit-streams.
the problem is, i think, one machine (g5 power mac) will not make it
that long. cpu-usage will be that high, that just a small part of the
project will run.
and now my question:
is there a known way to spread one maxpmsp/jitter task over some
machines ? like a cluster-thing?
found out that with mac osx 10.4 server comes a tool called "Xgrid"
(www.apple.com/acg/xgrid/) – a software cluster system- is it possible
to use xgrid + maxmsp to run a single job maxmsp-task across multiple
if every patch would act on its own – -that wouldn’t be a problem.
but many patches are connected via audio+jitter-streams – and exchange
lots of data.
just found out that XGrid just deals with commando-line tools, or
specially prepared software. i thinkg maxmsp would fit into this sceme
mhhh any other to scale a maxmsp process over some machines ??
can’t image, that nobody out there got the same problem …
