If somebody with write access to the wiki would like to add it, here is
the one we use on our Rocks cluster.



# The default rule assumes that the nodes are connected to the PDU
# and switch located in the same rack.  Only the exceptions need
# to be listed here.

# In our Rocks cluster, nodes are named "compute-X-Y", where X is the
# Rack identifier and Y is the vertical position of the node within
# the rack.

for ip in $@ ; do
    hostname=`nslookup $ip | grep "name =" | awk '{print $4}' | sed -e
's/\.local\.$//' `
    case $hostname in
            # Exception: This node had to be rewired into
            # an adjacent rack
            rack=`echo $hostname | sed -e
        echo $rack
