Performance clustering most often a per-application question, not one
that can be generalized too well. These tend to be pretty
distro-agnostic and generally rely on specialized tools running on nodes.

A classic example is a video render farm where a master node cuts up a
series of frames, hands them off to a node in the farm to render,
repeats for the various other parts of the movie, collects the finished
frame and stiches them together into a single movie. Similar concepts
can be applied to decryption, compilation and so on.

So, tell us what you are trying to do, specifically.
