Re: st: Stata (gllamm) benchmarks for different platforms?
I lost track of who was speaking for each part here, but no matter:
I can manage to do the switch to Linux. But I would not want it for my
everyday work. Do you think it is possible to use the Opteron/Linux
system as a remote server and submit jobs to it from Stata on another
computer (My Mac, and My colleagues Macs and PCs)? Or is it only
available from the command line?
I think it is possible to use the Linux box as a remote server and submit
Stata jobs to it; but you would need to ascertain that with someone who
knows more about setting that up than I do. In fact, Stata tech support
probably could tell you.
I typically do this.
I use putty to establish an ssh connection to the server from my winXP box,
and then I usually run stata for linux (suse9, dual opteron) in console mode.
If I want to use the stata gui I just make sure cygwin has started locally
and the xserver for cygwin has also started. Then starting xstata on the
server brings up the windows for viewing graphs, etc.
The sharpness of the graphics is reduced compared to running stata directly
on the windows box, but I believe that is the fault of the cygwin xwindows
server, rather than stata.
the only complaint I have is I cannot -graph use- .gph files that are on
the server when I am running stata locally. Nor does double clicking on
them in my network neighborhood work. I have to copy them over to the
local hard disk. Other programs (Excel, etc) on the local winXP box can
access files on the server directly (via samba).
