Does anyone know if I can install Torque on a multicore machine instead of across a cluster? We're looking to test some software that requires Torque and exceeds the hardware capability of our LSF based cluster.

We have a multicore machine that actually could meet the demands, except that the software is set up to require the use of Torque over a cluster - one thought I had was setting up this machine to look like a torque cluster to the software and perhaps that would work.

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

How about setting up a few VM's (one for each core) and have them in a cluster? – Nifle Dec 10 '10 at 22:42

Yes, this can be done. There are some great instructions in the Ubuntu forum for setting up a standalone Torque server.
