The previously “Sun Grid Engine” (SGE) now “Oracle Grid Engine” is a useful job scheduler that will allow one to effectively dispatch jobs to compute nodes for processing and queue up numerous jobs. It is typically used in high performance clusters. It provides a number of options for managing jobs including parallel environment setup, job priorities, user and group priorities, and queue configurations. Job policies can be effectively set via command line or GUI. Combine this resource with MPI and one can build a powerful supercomputer capable of processing large amounts of data.
