  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.8
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.7
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11

Advice for users generating graphics on Linux machines without local displays, typically clusters

Where batch graphical post-processing is performed on remote clusters we have observed problems when the standard OpenGL graphical libraries are used, giving images of inferior quality.  We have also observed problems when interactive graphics are generated remotely and displayed locally on the desktop through a network, as this can give unacceptably slow graphical performance.

Better results can sometimes be obtained in these situations from executables linked with the MESA emulation library, since this removes any dependence upon OpenGL and – in the remote display case – reduces network traffic.  If you wish to have executables linked in this way, or would like further advice, please contact us.
