What aspects of a single-system image are supported


MOSIX provides to users and applications the user's "login-node" run-time environment.

This means that:

  1. Users can login on any node and do not need to know where their programs run.
  2. No need to modify or link applications with special libraries.
  3. No need to copy files to remote nodes.
  4. Automatic resource discovery: whenever clusters or nodes join (disconnect), all the active nodes are updated.
  5. Automatic workload distribution by process migration, including load balancing, process migration from slower to faster nodes and from nodes that run out of free memory.
