Cluster management software is necessary to harness the collective
computing power in a cluster. ClusterProbe provides a set of Java-based
cluster management tools for maintenance, monitoring, and dynamic
configuration of both the computing and communication resources.
ClusterProbe also supports a runtime environment for the execution of
parallel tasks such as MPI. An integrated GUI will be implemented for
users and system administrator to access the cluster in a simple and
friendly manner. Several useful services are implemented in ClusterProbe,
including the visualization of cluster resources information in various
forms and cluster fault management. These services have been used to
assist the execution of a cluster-based search engine and a distributed
N-body application. All experiments demonstrate high efficiency and good
