Linux-based clusters have become prevalent as a foundation for High Performance Computing (HPC) systems. As these clusters become more affordable and available, and with the emergence of high speed networks, it is becoming more feasible to create HPC grids consisting of multiple clusters. One of the attractions of such grids is the potential to scale applications across the various clusters. This creates a number of interesting opportunities as well as introduces a number of challenges. A key question is the impact of the inter-cluster network on the overall performance of the computing environment. In this paper, we report on recent experiments to evaluate such performance.
