some test pickles still need to be re-created on 64 bit
see bug 1624505
Resolved: The new numpy seems not to have any issues with 32 versus 64 bit pickles.
host management is a bit awkward
Biskit.PVM keeps track of available computer nodes in a settings file ~/.biskit/hosts.dat. Nodes are classified into groups (own, shared, others) to which one can assign different nice-levels. RAM and CPU-number can also be given and some scripts use this to e.g. exclude nodes that are not up to the task from memory hungry calculations. The resulting hosts.dat format is a bit awkward and not easy to maintain (or understand). There are three workarounds:
- study it and use it
- use the native pvm host management (see pvm documentation)
- come up with your own solution and just pass your list to the master
Resolved: The sourceforge version of Biskit is now using a python module in .biskit/hosts.py to manage host lists.
