distributed processing

Hi,

I have a really compute intensive task. I multi threaded it which really increases performance on multiple processor systems. Is there a way though to distribute the processing over mutliple machines to take it a step further? I have some extra powerful machines laying around I could put to use with this. A general overview of what to look up etc is fine.

Thanks

Hi DJ_AM_Juicebox,

Look into clustering solutions. Which solution to use depends on your platform ... Newer versions of Windows and many Unixes are cluster aware.

Cheers!

Take a look at http://www.codeproject.com/internet/ctp.asp ("Commands Transfer Protocol (CTP) - A New Networking Protocol for Distributed or Parallel Computations") and http://www.codeproject.com/internet/ClusterComputing.asp ("Cluster Computing"). The 1st article comes with a nice example (along with sample code) and both address VC++ development.

How about DCOM (Microsoft's Distributed Component Object Model) ?
