    But, when I answered Zdenek, I forgot that years ago (at least 10 years
    ago), I used to try this method but the compilation time was
    dramatically slow. Maybe both software and hardware are better for
    handling this nowadays.

It depends on your LAN and the server. A few years ago I had a project when
I had to analyze a few million data sets, each analysis took about 2
minutes but the whole calculation took 3 months using 80 CPU cores, all
files were on one Linux computer (32-bit, single core), the disk was
mounted by NFS to some computers and by SSHFS to some computers, all
computers are on GB LAN and have GB ethernet ports. in comparison with the
same calculation with the files on a local disk there was no difference.
