Just a quick comment about LSF. The resource manager you can get
with OCS from Platform, called Lava, is an open-source version of
LSF. It's a much older version, (version 4.x I think?). I don't know
LSF to understand what features it's missing but it could prove to be
a good starting point for development much like Torque.
