We made the switch to SGE with Rocks 3.3, and have never looked back
since then. 

They should be able to co-exist, but you are likely to run into both
schedulers sending jobs to the same nodes because they are not aware of
each other, especially when the nodes are idling.

Regards,

Subject: [GE users] Testing Grid Engine while running another job queing
system?

Is it straightforward to install Grid Engine while also running Torque ,
so that I can try it out without inconveniencing the users? Any issues I
should be aware of that I might have missed in the docs I've looked at?
I did not see any specific reference to installing and testign grid
engine while running another queue system

Anyone care to sing the praises of this system over Torque or PBS  (or
vice versa) ? My specific reason for wanting to try another system is
that it appears that Torque does not actually assign jobs to hosts based
on the requested / available memory, it seems that this should be
allowed with GridEngine if I've understood the documents correctly.
 

Thanks in advance for any help
Robert
