[IPython-User] SSH remote ipcontroller?
Mon Apr 29 16:25:38 CDT 2013
I'm trying to set up my first ipython parallel configuration on a local
compute cluster. I've been following the ssh guidelines here:
and have not had luck in getting it to work. I'm running into several
problems which may or may not be related, but I wanted to ask a couple
quick questions to make sure I'm on the right track:
- Should the ipcontroller be run locally on my laptop or on a node of the
- Is it possible to set up a remote cluster so it can be driven from an
ipython notebook on my laptop? I noticed these two things in the docs:
The *ipcluster* command provides a simple way of starting a controller and
engines in the following situations:
4. When the controller is started on localhost and the engines are started
on remote nodes using *ssh*.
Currently *ipcluster* requires that the
live on a shared filesystem that is seen by both the controller and
engines. If you don’t have a shared file system you will need to use *
ipcontroller* and*ipengine* directly.
I'm confused by these two statements. Can I use ipcluster to start a
remote cluster, or not? I've seen a couple demos where people drive remote
clusters using the notebook interface on their laptop... does this require
manually starting the controller and engines?
Thanks for any guidance,
