15.1. Introduction

This Section is a Work in Progress

Lots of people try to use openMosix as a kind of compile farm, ofthen they come back very disappointed. This chapter of the howto will try to explain in which cases your compilations will benefit from openMosix and how to improve your successlevel.

First of all you have to remember 1 thing. openMosix will not migrate all processes you start on your cluster, only the ones that will benefit from migration to another node. For compiling this means that a process has to last long enough. Kernel compiles typically consist of numerous short compiles, each of them not being long enough to acutally migrate.
