By itself, Globus Toolkit does not do scheduling/load-balancing. If you
are just looking for a simple solution, I will recommand you to take a
look at GridWay (http://www.gridway.org). It is very lightweight and the
commands are very similar to Grid Engine's. It runs on top of Globus and
works pretty well for a small grid setup.
