Ridiculously easy ways to distribute processor intensive tasks using Rinda and DRb

Here are the slides for my FOSCON talk. Additionally, I wrote code during the talk which is also available. Run these in order to get it working:

  1. ruby rinda.rb

  2. ruby prime_finder.rb

  3. ruby prime_client.rb

You should follow me on twitter here.

If you use the Rinda ringserver instead of actually specifying ip addresses and ports, won't it be slower than using drb with specified ip addresses and ports?

It will be slightly slower on startup while it goes on the network for a quick lookup for the ip address and port, but once those are acquired once, they need never be looked up again.
