Cluster Management

Today I've installed:
Moab Cluster Suite® is a professional cluster management solution that integrates scheduling, managing, monitoring and reporting of cluster workloads. Moab Cluster Suite simplifies and unifies management across one or multiple hardware, operating system, storage, network, license and resource manager environments to increase the ROI of cluster investments. Its task-oriented graphical management and flexible policy capabilities provide an intelligent management layer that guarantees service levels, speeds job processing and easily accommodates additional resources.

and Gold
Gold is an open source accounting system developed
by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) as part of the Department of Energy (DOE) Scalable Systems Software Project (SSS). It tracks resource usage on High Performance Computers and acts much like a bank, establishing accounts in order to pre-allocate user and project resource usage over specific nodes and timeframe. Gold provides balance and usage feedback to users, managers, and system administrators.

Users of Moab Workload Manager can integrate with Gold to track and charge job resource usage, providing greater control over who is using the cluster or grid resources.

Overall resume: pretty decent piece of software
