Grid Engine is software that facilitates "distributed resource
management" (DRM).  Far more than just simple load-balancing tools or
batch scheduling mechanisms, DRM software typically provides the
following key features across large sets of distributed resources:
* Policy based allocation of distributed resources (CPU time,
software licenses, etc.)
* Batch queuing & scheduling
* Support diverse server hardware, OS and architectures
* Load balancing & remote job execution
* Detailed job accounting statistics
* Fine-grained user specifiable resources
* Suspend/resume/migrate jobs
* Tools for reporting Job/Host/Cluster status
* Job Arrays
* Integration & control of parallel jobs
This package contains the Grid Engine user utilities.
