> Using regular desktops as hadoop slaves
> ---------------------------------------
>                 Key: HADOOP-3978
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3978
>             Project: Hadoop Common
>          Issue Type: Wish
>         Environment: 1) Windows XP/Vista
> 2) MAC OS/X, Linux
>            Reporter: Niels Basjes
>            Priority: Minor
> In many companies there are a lot of desktop systems (usually XP) running all day without
doing really much work.
> The basic idea of this wish is similar to what SETI@home did in a screen saver: Turn
the idle time of many desktops into a lot of hadoop slaves.
> My wish is that an easy to deploy package (MSI package?) is created that turns an XP
system into a hadoop slave.
> The primary task of such a system is being a user desktop. So the hadoop software on
such a slave will have restrictions on how many system resources (memory, cpu, network) it
can use.
> Having such a feature will make it viable for small companies to start using hadoop for
tasks and experiments.
