I was taking a idle look at the new Beta 6_2U3
I see by default JMX is on be default.

I am not 100% sure what benefit this brings but I believe the following is true.

JMX means that every user who want to use the Grid has to be registered.

For a site like mine that has lots of Students that come in for small Research projects it is going to be a lot more work to configure the users into SGE
never mind to remember to remove then when the leave.

Is it possible to install JMX but not have to do the configure part for all the users.
i.e just as a normal 6_2U2 install with out JMX and any user can submit jobs etc

My only real reason for going down the JMX route would be use the new Inspect module which looks promising

If JMX is the way to go how to upgrade a current 6_2U2 install to include JMX
I would guess it will have to be a complete re-install including doing the Exec / submit nodes

Any thoughts on the above.


p.s Sorry for asking so many dumb questions , the joy of been a first timer for SGE
