[GE users] Modeling to Justify Improved Hardware

Rayson,

I'm talking about better machines for the cluster nodes.  The qmaster load
is not high.  The job load here tends to be .5 to 3 hour jobs with a max of
500 in a given day.

It all depends on your workload... and the number of nodes that you plan to
add.

Also, are you talking about using a better machine to run qmaster, or better
machines for the cluster nodes??
