Distem

Distem is a distributed systems emulator. When doing research on Cloud, P2P, High Performance Computing or Grid systems, it can be used to transform an homogenenous cluster (composed of identical nodes) into an experimental platform where nodes have different performance, and are linked together through a complex network topology, making it the ideal tool to benchmark applications targetting such environments.

Coding Style

  • comments + commit messages in english
  • documentation using rdoc
  • indent with two spaces. With Vim, that does the trick:
autocmd BufNewFile,BufRead *.rb set ts=2 expandtab sw=2
