Technology for Integrating Idle Computing Cluster Resources into Volunteer Computing Projects
Abstract— In this paper we propose the technology for integrating idle computing cluster resources
into volunteer computing projects. The main principles of this technology are the following: only
standard cluster user rights and only idle computing cluster resources (i.e. the resources that are not
employed by other cluster users) are used. We describe the CluBORun tool implementing this
technology for BOINC-based volunteer computing projects. The CluBORun tool was successfully
applied to boost the performance of volunteer computing projects SAT@home and
Index Terms— volunteer computing, BOINC, computing cluster, job scheduler, MPI, SAT@home, OPTIMA@home.
