EnFuzion and MOSIX are two packages that represent
different approaches to cluster management. EnFuzion is
a user-level queuing system that can dispatch a
predetermined number of processes to a cluster. It is a
commercial version of Nimrod, a tool that supports
parameter sweep applications on a variety of platforms.
MOSIX, on the other hand, is operating system (kernel)
level software that supports preemptive process migration
for near optimal, cluster-wide resource management,
virtually makings the cluster run like an SMP.
Traditionally, users either use EnFuzion with a
conventional cluster operating system, or MOSIX without
