Original request:

   Can anyone recommend a software package that submits jobs and
   maintains batch queues with priorities on a Sun system? (Either
   SunOS 4.1.3 or Solaris 2.3 ) . The name "Maestro" comes to mind
   though I can not remember where I saw it.

Thank you for your responses.


        Take a look at the Distributed Queueing System (DQS), available at:
        It's very portable, offers many features, and has an X GUI (I'm a
        co-author of the GUI). Best of all, it's freely available and
        redistributable.Version 3.0.2 was made public today. You may wish to
        retrieve version 3.1, due out by the week's end.

"You can use mdqs software, which is available on NET. To find it You
can use archie."

        Several people suggested NQS (Network Queueing System) which can be
        found on the network.

"You are right Maestro is one of the software for job scheduling.
Maestro is from a company called Unison-Tymlabs (Telf in USA:

Also you have from a company called Openvision, a software called
OpenV*Scheduler (teleph: 1-512-426-6400)."
        Someone also included the following summary that had been
        posted May 6:

Condor (6) Extra library to be compiled in. Migrates jobs to a number
                of available machines. Will not use machines whose load
                exceeds some preset limit.

Net Linda (3) Provides 6 calls to add net parallelism to C programs.

PVM (7) Allows a collection of heterogeneous computers to be used
                as a coherent and flexible concurrent computational resource.
                Programs written in C, C++ or Fortran access PVM through
                library routines.
