Running remote host Weka experiments

Previously we have tried to run weka server to utilize all cores of processor in classification tasks. But appears that wekaserver works only in explorer for classification routines. For more advanced machine learning there is more flexible tool – experimenter. Weka server doesn’s support this area. So what to do if you want more performance or simply utilize multi-core processor of local machine. There is a way out, but it is more tricky. Weka has ability to perform remote experiments that allow spreading the load across multiple host machines that have Weka set up. You can read the documentation of remote experiment on Weka wikispaces, but in some cases it may be somewhat confusing. It took time for me to figure out some parts by trial and error. The trickiest part is to set everything up and prepare the necessary command to be run before performing remote experiment. So lets…
