Linux Journal Issue #163/November 2007

The November issue of Linux Journal is all about High-Performance Computing from many angles. Delve right into this month's hands-on feature articles, including Khurram Shiraz's primer on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Cluster Suite, Daniel Bartholomew's piece on gracefully transferring services between systems with Heartbeat and Jack Chongjie Xue's case study on building a high-availability e-mail system at a major university.

Another theme this month is doing your core work faster and more efficiently. Take Jes Hall's article on distributing your compiling work across multiple machines in your network via distcc or Girish Venkatachalam's on enhancing your performance when network programming in C. We also interview execs at RapidMind about their cutting-edge platform for leveraging multicore processors and accelerators.

Next, check out our trusty gang columnists and opinionators: Nick Petreley is talking Java, Reuven Lerner is thinking APIs and Jon "maddog" Hall is parsing Sun's Solaris marketing hype.

Finally, Chef Marcel Gagne knows the real reason you bought dual-core processor--to play high-performance racing games! Touché, Marcel!
