The front end can run on the head node and communicaet using pipes, or it can run on any PC, and communicate via the network, using gtpproxy. Complete instructions are available in the readme.txt file. If there are any issues or questions, please email

This is currently beta quality software, and is no longer under development. It currently is limited to running on a power of two number of nodes, and it will use by default all cores in each node.
