"Are you talking about a job scheduler, resource manager or parallelization?"

well i'm talking about the whole thing, i think it is pretty resource wasteful and jobs are poorly distributed . it eats too much of my resources, so sometimes i just log on directly to each node and start my job's manually.

the answer to your other 3 questions are




my colleges and me are doing all those things :)

    It might not be Perl, but from what you're mentioning about wasting resources, you might want to look at Alan Sussman's work on P2PGrid ... I saw the 2006 presentation, and he was working on having the programs register what resources they need (so they'd be assigned to appropriate machines ... so you didn't waste the machines w/ 32GB of RAM on something that only needed CPU time, not memory)
