I need to design a task scheduler (not PBS job scheduler) on Open MPI cluster.
Quick question - why *not* PBS?
Using shell scripts with the Job Array and Dependent Jobs features of PBS Pro (not sure about Maui/Torque nor SGE) you can implement this in a fairly straight forward manner. It worked for the Bioinformaticists using BLAST.
It just seems that the workflow you are describing is part and partial of what any good workload management system is supposed to do and do well.
Just a thought.
