I'm really trying to stay on top of what Grid Engine 6 is going to 
provide so to that end I sat down this week and wrote up a basic 
personal cheatsheet on the differences between 5.3, 6.0 and the Sun 
branded N1 Grid Engine 6 products.

It's available online here and I'll try to keep it up-to-date:


All mistakes and omissions are my own of course. I'm not a developer or 
any sort of real software engineer type so be forwarned!

I'm particularly interested in making sure I clearly comprehend the new 
powers that the additional scheduling algorithms and policies bring.

Feedback and corrections of all kinds is appreciated.

As I've been gently reminded though, this list is not the place to 
discuss in any real depth the 6.0 beta product. Please send feedback to 
me directly or to the grid engine developers mailing list. If you are 
beta testing the Sun N1GE 6beta2 product there is a different mailing 
list entirely.
