[gridengine users] Is round-robin scheduling per user possible?

How do you get it to work with SGE?

When I try to install the RPM it complains it needs Torque

when I download the tarball and run it I get:

And if you need a tool to keep an eye on the action as it happens, have a look at qtop:

Hi Sean, Christopher,

Thanks for the link, Sean.  I'll definitely give that a read and see if I can figure out the details (I'm kind of new to configuring SGE).  And thanks to both of you for your feedback.

I will add that I just didn't provide a link we use this in production at Soft Machines and it works well.....

Hi Mun,

We use the fair share approach that Sean links to provide round robin scheduling within queues at our site.

For example, if User-A queues up 10 jobs, and then User-B queues up 10 jobs to the same queue; can SGE be configured to dispatch each of the 20 jobs to execution hosts in a round-robin fashion per user?  If so, how?
