distributed batch processing
I sent the following mail to -devel, but thought this list will
have some fine advices. I am not really willing to set up a
cluster just to distribute jobs though.
Many thanks, Paul

I am looking at ways to distribute batch jobs on various hosts.
Essentially, i have N different command lines, and M different
hosts to run them on:
foo -i file1.data -p 0.1
foo -i file2.data -p 0.1
foo -i file3.data -p 0.1
foo -i file1.data -p 0.2
I had a try with 'queue' , but it seems rather obsolete now.
I am now seeking recent alternatives. I went across a few
solutions, such as DQS  (non-free, unmaintained), OpenPBS 
(non-free), and distribulator  (looks interesting).
Now i feel like i have missed something obvious. Is there a tool
out there that i could use as a drop in replacement for queue?
