Hello everyone,

I have a certain scheduling policy that I would like to implement, but I 
am having trouble determining if it is even possible with SGE.  I would 
like to have job priorities determined by share tree tickets (no problem 
there).  Then I want jobs to be checkpointed/suspended or 
started/resumed based on the job priorities each iteration.  This would 
allow us to remove all limits on number of used job slots per user while 
still ensuring low queue times for those with high enough priority.  
This seems like a kind of panacea of scheduling algorithms (and 
relatively simple), but I have yet to find a resource manager that will 
support it.

So can SGE do this or something close to it?
