alternative to GNU Queue

Roger's picture

Beware that this is a pre-alpha release. The original GNU Queue code hadn't been supported in some time - the project was restarted last summer with a new re-write which is this current release. I would therefore be leery using this current code for anything more than experimentation, certainly not in a production environment.

An alternative, also free and open source, is Sun's Grid Engine project (http://gridengine.sunsource.net/). It works on Linux, Solaris, Windows, Mac OS X, and probably most versions of Unix. Grid Engine is probably an order of magnitude more complex to configure than GNU Queue but it has many more capabilities. For your home computer network it is undoubtedly overkill but for any other environment it is seriously worth considering.

One Click, Universal Protection: Implementing Centralized Security Policies on Linux Systems

As Linux continues to play an ever increasing role in corporate data centers and institutions, ensuring the integrity and protection of these systems must be a priority. With 60% of the world's websites and an increasing share of organization's mission-critical workloads running on Linux, failing to stop malware and other advanced threats on Linux can increasingly impact an organization's reputation and bottom line.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
