Bruno,
Has anybody tried dynamically reconfiguring the nodes to optimize for an
application, maybe trimming the kernels down to bare minima for quick
swichovers? I'm interested in optimization algorithms more than in
application hosting per se, so it would not need to be real fast for
expermienting.
