The speaker will discuss how the Argonne "Jazz" Linux teraflops cluster is being used to simulate the simultaneous biochemical activities of hundreds of bacterial cells. Jazz is a scientific and engineering computing cluster with 350 2.4 GHz Pentium IV computers connected by both Myricom Myrinet and Fast Ethernet and over 20 TB of online storage. The current design and configuration of the Argonne "Jazz" Linux cluster will be discussed in the context of its use for large-scale scientific simulation.
