The 1st impression on "Building a BeagleBone Black Super Cluster" is a well-defined text book to quickly study clustering computing including H/W (CPU, Memeory, System Board, Flush device, etc) and S/W (OS, Libraries) creating a BeagleBone Cluster computing with credit-card-sized Linux computer, BeagleBone.
The reason is you can learn or just imagine how to create a cluster computing system through the book.

The book seems that it fouses more scientific aspect rather than creating your own clustering application with BeagleBone black cluster.

I summarized my impression for each chpater one by one as below.

1. BeagleBone Black System Board
Introducing common features of hardware devices (for example, CPU, onboard memory and flush storage) and OS.
It's short but easy to understand hardware components and its features for beginners.

2. Building a Beowulf Cluster
How to set up and build self-made clustering system with BeagleBone.
I am impressed that it mentions about hardware architecture introducing several components, not only BeagleBone itself but, for example, cooling system, power supply cable and LAN cable, network device).

3. Operating System Setup and Configuration
Here comes more practical part about how to install OS using a microSD card, configure network settings, installing development libraries.

4. Parallel Computing with OpenMPI and ScaLAPACK
Introduction about how to install OpenMPI and create a clustering test application to understand the basic usage and functionting of the MPI standard interface, and install ScaLAPACK and get in touch with the mathematical suburoutines of ScaLAPACK.

5. Advanced Solving of General Equation Systems
Compiling PETSc and SLEPc libraries to test the scaling abilities of BeagleBone Black cluster.
What I'm fascinated with is that we can understand the series of how to test the cluster's scaling ability by installing libraries, running test applications, and seeing the test result.

6. Scientific and Technological Examples of Parallel Computing
The last part is about how the BeagleBone black cluster can be used for scientific or engineering simulations using deal..II library to perform higgh-end calculations.
Actually, it was too difficult for me to understand because I've had no experience this area. However, it is definitely valuable to understand the process of simulation test and the libraries used for the test.

I'm an infrastructure engineer in 30s in Japan, pre/post-sales, service planning, system engineering for AWS system integration, dreaming working abroad.

I love their product especially the dashboard and the easiness to install agents without any effect on the product site. I've been using OSS monitoring softwares like Nagios, Icinga, Zabbix, Cacti, Hobbit. They were very helpful to learn what and how to monitor by creating templates and plugins. On the other hand, it takes time and costs a lot to manage monitoring servers by ourselves.
