NONMEM is becoming increasingly suitable and capable of distributed
computing. Particularly so with the introduction of parallelization of
runs at the individual level with NONMEM 7.20. However, due to the
number of permutations and combinations of operating systems and
versions, compilers/linkers and versions, and distributed computing
options (grids, clusters, clouds, etc.), the customer support for
distributed computing of NONMEM obviously becomes an extremely
complicated and daunting task for ICON.


We have devised a short questionnaire in attempt to determine some of
the most common configurations currently in use by our clients. The
goal is to bolster our support for NONMEM and PDx-Pop distributed
computing to the extent that is feasible for ICON. Please return your
responses to nmconsult
you would like your replies to be confidential). Your replies are
gratefully appreciated.


1. Do you use a grid, cluster, or cloud (GrClCl) for NONMEM

2. If so, please give the name and a brief description of the
configuration you use:

3. What operating system(s) does your GrClCl run on?

4. Does your GrClCl use a job scheduler or similar program? If
so, please give the scheduler name and whether or not it is a commercial


(We have intentionally kept this minimal to encourage replies.)
