I have cloned the StarCluster git repository to
and added support for the Amazon
Cluster Computer instances.
This has been tested with boto-2.0b2 and with the Amazon generic Cluster
Compute hvm AMI ami-7ea24a17 (which is not, of course, StarCluster ready)
The "start" command has a new feature that if the -x option is used, it
will restart a stopped one.
The "stop" command will stop rather than terminate ebs backed instances
(if they are not spot instances).
A new 'terminate" command has been added to actually terminate a running
or stopped cluster.
Please feel free to try it out and let me know if there are any problems.
Next challenge is going to be building a StarCluster hvm compatible
image. If anyone has done this, please let know.
