We introduce PC Linux cluster computing techniques to an Evolutionary Graph Generation (EGG) system, and successfully implement the parallel version of the EGG system, called PEGG. Our survey satisfactorily shows that the parallel evolutionary approach meets our expectation that the final solutions obtained from PEGG will be as good as or better than those obtained from EGG, and that PEGG can ultimately improve the speed of evolution.
