Phil Pennington, Windows Server Technical Evangelist, is inviting users to access a new tool developed by a member of the Microsoft High Performance Computing team for free.
“Test your sanity. Actually, not you personally. But rather the sanity of your HPC cluster. How do you know that its performance is up to par? It's not an easy task without a toolkit. How about trying a custom toolkit created by an HPC industry guru? For a limited time (of course), we'll send you Frank Chism's 'uSane' toolkit for free! Even better, Frank himself will illustrate how to use it in detail (or at least a reasonable facsimile of Frank),” Pennington stated.
In order to get free access to the uSane toolkit, customers will have to sign up as a community member of WindowsHPC.net. Next, Pennington has to be contacted directly via the Windows HPC Server 2008 blog with the registration name of those interested in the toolkit. “I'll reply with download instructions for the uSane Toolkit. No pressure, no technical support either... but hey!... It's a good toolkit for free,” Pennington concluded.
