Re: distributed batch processing

Last I checked, OpenPBS was still free as in beer and source
was available.  Wether it is free as in Stallman is another matter.
It is still part of the OSCAR cluster solution

There are some others available as well:

  Sun's Grid Engine (http://gridengine.sunsource.net)
  which is a reincarnation of Codine, which was a reincarnation
  of DQS.

  The Condor (http://www.cs.wisc.edu/condor) cycle-scavenging
  batch system.

  GenericNQS (http://www.gnqs.org/) which is mostly dead, but
  source is still available.

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
