Batch processing and local rsh replacement system

This project has been decomissioned. See Parallel, its replacement.

Queue is a load balancing system that lets users control their remote jobs. It does this with local shell job control and signaling and can be used as a local replacement for rsh to hosts within a homogeneous cluster under single administrative control. Queue also supports more traditional email based load-balancing and distributed batch-processing facilities using a number of criteria to decide where to send jobs. No special privileges are required for installation.
