I search the docs, but i can't find it. maybe you can give me some hint to
do it??

Mr. Rousskov, my final target is to maximizing paralelism on my cluster. If
we run several scenario sequentially through single machine, i think it will
to long . I think it will be more efficient if i can distribute several
client and server pair on my cluster

So my question is :

1. Can we configure Polybench so that we "fool" them so they act on
homogenous machine?? I need this information, because my machines is not
identical. In my lab, several machine are Pentium, the rest is Celeron.

2. Is there any tool to automate generating several scenario ?? So, i run
client server pair with cache hit eg 5% until 60%, with increment about 5 %
for example

pardon me to ask like this, because this is the only way to minimize our
