[phenixbb] queueing systems

We don't use PHENIX, but we do use several queueing systems on three different clusters.

SGE is bulletproof and highly recommended.

Condor has some degree of "evilness" -- especially under Windows.  I have found it prone to grabbing resources indiscriminately and also being very, very resistant to uninstallation.  Your mileage may vary.

Certain implementations of "torque" are broken - stay away, or at least be very cautious and enter with your eyes open.

The eventual goal - if feasible - is to add support for submitting jobs directly from the Phenix GUI.  Anyone who is interested, please send me (not the list) a brief email describing a) the OS, b) the queueing software, and c) the submission method (i.e. shell script, configuration file, simple command).  (Also, anyone who is willing to help test this if and when it becomes available, let me know - I have access to Sun Grid Engine and Condor already, but it's probably going to be difficult to test anything else personally.)
