Hi all

We have the SGE web interface.

It integrates into our Rocks cluster management web interface. That is 
you NEED to use ROCKS (www.rockscluster.org)

You can download RxC from www.scalablesystems.com

It is free for non-commercial, academic use.

It provides web based:
- SGE management
- SGE job submission
- some basic reporting
- and of course managing a Rocks cluster via a web interface.

Have fun.
