I guess we may want to start with the ipython documentation on this
topic: http://ipython.org/ipython-doc/stable/parallel/parallel_process.html

> Hi,
> I would like to use IPython for calculations on our cluster. It's a
> total of 11 compute + 1 management nodes (all running Linux), and we're
> using SGE's qsub to submit jobs. The $HOME directory is shared via NFS
> between all the nodes.
> Even after reading the documentation, I'm unsure about how to get things
> running. I assume that I'll have to execute ``ìpcluster -n 16`` on all
> compute nodes (they have 16 cores each). I'd have the ipython shell
> (notebook won't work due to firewall restrictions I cannot change) on
> the management node. But how does the management node know about the
> kernels which are running on the compute nodes and waiting for a job?
> And how can I tell the management node that it shall use qsub to submit
> the jobs to the individual kernels?
> As I think this is a common use case, I'd be willing to write up a nice
> tutorial about the setup, but I fear I need some help from you guys to
> get things running ...
> Cheers,
> -- Andreas.
