It's weekend, it's time for hacking.

I downloaded the SGE 5.3 source code. Played with it
for a while, the 50+MB of source does have some
goodies, it is not as simple as NQS:

1. Master fail-over: you can set up several shadow
masters in one cluster. When the qmaster fails, one of
the shadow masters will take over.

2. Project base fairshare: you can have project A
using 30% of your cluster resource, project B using
the other 30%, and project C using the rest.

3. User base fairshare: same, but users instead of

4. deadline scheduling

5. distributed make: qmake

6. security: krb, dce, ssl, etc

7. NT execution engine

8. Java interface

9. COBRA interface

10. Perl interface

11. preemptive seheduling

12. job scheduler: calender based job scheduler

13. Parallel interface

14. checkpointing interface

I am still hacking. There are more interesting
features that are in the source.
