GNU Queue

 [image of the head of a GNU]

This package has been decommissioned. See GNU Parallel.


GNU Queue is a program to spawn tasks on a pool of separate computer systems. GNU Queue load balances across the resources available in a compute pool. A user submits a task and the first available system meeting the resources requirements will execute the task. The current design direction is to assume essentially identical independent systems.


A completely new code base is under development. More news will be posted when files and documents are made available.

At this moment there are no versions available for download. Please see the Savannah pages for more information.
