Overview: Model I

A CLC Server job nob node setup involves a master node and one or more job nodes. The master node manages incoming jobs, including placing tasks in the queue, while the job nodes execute the jobs. Each job node is expected to be dedicated to running the CLC Server software. A more detailed overview is given in Introduction to servers setup.

The general steps for setting up this model are:

  1. Install the CLC Server software on all the machines involved. (See Installation.)

  2. Install the license on the machine that will act as the master node. (See Downloading a License.)

  3. Start up the CLC Server software on the master server. Then start up the software on the job nodes. (See Starting and Stopping the Server.)

  4. Log in to the web adminstrative interface for the CLC Server of the master node. (See Installation.)

  5. Configure the master node, attach the job nodes and configure the job nodes via the administrative interface on the master node.

Almost all configuration for the CLC Server cluster is done via the CLC Server web administrative interface on the master node. This includes the installation of plugins. See Installing Server plugins. Job nodes inherit their configurations from the master node.

The only work done directly on the machines that will run as job nodes is
