A Parallel Python Environment with easy data sharing
PPlus is a simple environment to execute Python code in parallel on many machines without much effort. It is actually a fork of Parallel Python, another simple but powerful framework for parallel execution of python code, which lacks features needed for effective use in our daily research.
To install this packages, you can use the default distutils commands:
python setup.py build sudo python setup.py install
To check the installation, you can launch the test suite:
python -c "import pplus; pplus.test()"
Note that tests will print reports of expected raised exceptions. Check if you get OK or FAILED status at the end.
All the configuration option must be specified in a PPlus configuration file. After the installation, a ready-to-edit configuration file is installed in /etc/pplus/pplus.cfg (see documentation for more information about PPlus configuration)
