AFAIK, the only batch system included in Debian is DQS, and it's

But if you don't care about a .deb, you'll have far more choices (and
you will be able to do your own .deb). There is a number of free batch
systems. But two I know about are GenericNQS and PBS.

The first is plain old NQS, but it has strong limitations with regard
to parallel jobs, and it's quite old. The latter is more modern and
seems to be a better choice. It can be found on http://www.openpbs.org.
