9.2. Creating a "Master" node

Although openMosix architcture does not require a master node as such, you might want to have a head node from where you launch processes, this might be a multihomed node from where users log in to your cluster. You want to configure your machine to make processes migrate away

You have to trick the node in thinking it is the slowest node around and it'd better migrate all it's processes to the faster nodes.

You will have to make it "slow" with :

mosctl setspeed [n]
where n should be much lower than the speed of the other nodes Processes will move/migrate away fast. You can get the speed of a node with :
mosctl getspeed
