distributed batch processing

Hi all,

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

Hi all,

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' [1], but it seems rather obsolete now.
I am now seeking recent alternatives. I went across a few
solutions, such as DQS [2] (non-free, unmaintained), OpenPBS [3]
(non-free), and distribulator [4] (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?

cheers, paul
