XgridLite, a Mac OS X preference pane, enables the Xgrid distributed computing solution on the desktop version of Mac OS X. If you don't need the advanced features of Mac OS X Server's Xgrid controller but still want to run your own grid, XgridLite is for you. With XgridLite, you can:

  • Turn on and off the built-in Xgrid controller with a single click.
  • Set passwords for client and agent authentication.
  • Reset the controller to default settings.

Well, I'm down to only one mac again, but I stumbled across news that the author has got it working on Leopard (yay!). The new version still needs testing on Tiger though - any guinea pigs?

The checkbox in the Sharing preference pane activates the Xgrid *agent*--letting your computer help out on an existing grid. XgridLite activates the *controller*--letting you create a brand-new grid of your own.
