Hi, we've got two HPC clusters doing nothing, 2x34 nodes, (total of 68 nodes) running Sun Grid Engine, based on Linux 32 bit and 64 bit, 34 nodes are Dual Core AMD Opteron (2.2GHz), and Dual Core Intel Xeons. (2.6GHz)

approx 1.4Tflops.

I do not have a clue, how I could get SETI running on them, but any help would be appreciated, it would certainly be worth the clusters doing something as they are powered-up!!! doing nothing, other than creating alot of noise, heat.....

thanks

What I do know running BOINC in cluster is not possible.

doesn't really help me, because the client needs to run across 64 nodes of the cluster!
