Icegrid for dummies
Does anyone have or come across any blogs, posts or something similar showing how to deploy ICE (especially icegrid) in a manner accessible to audience outside the technologists' community. I have a computationally intensive job to do (in Python) that could easily take a few days to finish and I would like to use icegrid so that other computers could undertake parts of it. I think this is something that fits quite well within zeroc ice's ecology. The problem is that I haven't managed to get the slightest grip on it. Ok, i can run the (python) demos that the ice people have made, I tried to understand (in vain) the manual/articles on the site and I have installed icegridgui but I still dont know basic things, like for example:
How to 'put' computers on the grid
Make workers (slave pcs) pick up and perform a task and return back the result
I am pretty comfortable with Python but I have zero knowledge of C/C++. I should be able to do some small edits to existing Java code. Is this beyond my reach then?
Any help highly appreciated
