hello folks,

Well, i would like to know how to organize the nodes
to abtain the best performance of my cluster, for now
i'm using a star topology to my 16 nodes cluster, i
heard something about using a 4x4 grid instead 1x16,
is it better? why? And i also would like to know a way
to calculate(predict) the performance of a cluster,
for example, i have a 16 nodes(using fast ethernet)
cluster and i`m not sure about the maximum performace
i should get, to compare with the HPL benchmark
