I need s/w to manage a queue of jobs and a pool of networked unix machines.
Jobs will be issued from the queue to the "best" machine, based on attributes
such as the type of job, the size / speed / current load of each machine, time
of day, etc. Most jobs be big and slow rather than small and fast. The system
should be pretty much free-running once it's set up.
Does something like this exist?
