I'm doing a build on my build server that can take advantage of multi-core processors, though I only have two - so it takes about 4 to 5 hours. There are several machines that us developers use for these builds in the lab, but most of the time they are idle. I would like to find a way to run my build by maybe harnessing the power of the servers in the lab. I did a little research and it seems one option would be to use some expensive vmware software to do it, but that would take some convincing to management to pay for.
Anyone have any general strategy for running a process like this across networked machines(they are all RHEL btw)? Any good places to start my research? Thanks.
