[IPython-User] Spawning kernels on different machines
Mon Jun 18 07:12:05 CDT 2012
Hello IPython team,
With the current Tornado-ZMQ kernel architecture for the notebook frontend,
is it possible to run the kernel processes on a different machine/core from
the main server process?
Here is the use case:
- I have a notebook server running on my machine
- the machine has access to a cluster farm with several cores
- whenever a new user accesses the notebook server, I start a kernel for
the user on one of the cluster cores
- The server needs to manage the data exchange between the kernels on the
cluster and the user.
IPython.Parallel might be better suited for this, but for other reasons, I
modified the notebookapp to run a custom webapp on the Tornado server. And,
I want a way to spawn the kernels on a cluster.
Thanks for the comments!
