Hello, I wonder if I can specify the quantity of the jobs by ParallelTable, or similar commands. For example, suppose there is one master + three slave machines connected. All I can do at this moment is like a = ParallelTable[ i^2 +3, {i, 1, 3000}] so that I do not know the load level of each slave machines. Because I know the CPU speed, I want to divide the total job so that (for example) CPU 1 --- i = 1 to 500 CPU 2 --- i = 501 to 2000 CPU 3 --- i = 2001 to 3000 Is this possible by Mathematica's parallel computing kit? -Toshi ********************************************************** Toshiyuki (Toshi) Meshii meshii at mech.fukui-u.ac.jp Department of Mechanical Engineering Fukui University, 3-9-1 Bunkyo, Fukui, 910-8507, JAPAN Tel & Fax +81-776-27-8468 http://mech.fukui-u.ac.jp/~meshii/meshii.htm **********************************************************
