PANTS is the PANTS Application Node Transparency System. It provides automatic and transparent load sharing on a Beowulf cluster of Linux computers. PANTS manages the resources of the cluster and executes processes remotely to share the computational load among the individual nodes. Even multiprocess applications not designed for a cluster can gain improved performance. Transparency is achieved with a daemon running on each node and PREX, PANTS remote execute, intercepting and remotely executing initiated processes.
