I need a simple job queuing system for MPICH jobs on Windows plattform.
I know Condor and have quickly looked over a few other systems (most
not available for windows) but all together seemed not to be what I
really want, or to be more precisely are much more than I need.
I have a little cluster of 6 dedicated windows xp workstations for
parallel computing with MPI. Currently I start a my application with
mpirun on an external workstation but it is also possible to start it
on one of those cluster pc's directly. The problem is that many users
want to use this application.
I need a simple queuing system which stores the user requests to start
the application with some parameters and processing each job in turn.
I need no resource management since there are always the same 6 cluster
nodes used. I need no sheduling since the next job starts after the
current job has finished (no preemption or priorities or such stuff).
But I do need the possibility to manage the job queue, e.g. list all
queued jobs or remove a job.
Anyone know some suitable software or shall I write my own one?
