Distributed computing

As alternative to the MathWorks Parallel Computing Toolbox, FieldTrip includes three stand-alone modules for distributed computing. These range from small to large scale distributed computing. Note that FieldTrip does not automatically distribute the workload; you have to implement the distributed computing in your own analysis scripts as explained in the distributed computing tutorial.

  • engine distributed computing on a (massive) multi-core computer
  • peer distributed computing on an ad-hoc multi-core and/or multi-node peer-to-peer cluster
  • qsub distributed computing on a Torque, Slurm or SGE cluster
