File Splitter for Cluster

GenericKnimeNodes version 1.0.0.v202001091550 by Freie Universitaet Berlin, Universitaet Tuebingen, and the GenericWorkflowNodes Team

The KNIME cluster extension can distribute tables across a cluster. To enable the distribution of files, this node splits a given file into parts and creates a table with file store cells that reference the parts. When the table is distributed the files are taken along and can be processed in parallel on different cluster nodes. Use the "Port to File Cells" node to send back result files.
