Sun Grid Engine is a load management tool for heterogeneous, distributed computing environments. Grid Engine provides an effective method for distributing the batch workload among multiple computational servers. In doing so, it increases the productivity of all of the machines and simultaneously increases the number of jobs that can be completed in a given time period. Also, the need for outside computational resources is reduced. All production jobs on the HPCVL clusters must be submitted to Grid Engine.
