See http://www.drmaa.org

 From an submit node.

Because a DRMAA script is faster and more scalable and less burden on 
the master than forking off a ton of CLI tools.

No.  DRMAA today is in fact fairly limited.  It basically offers you the 
capabilities of qsub and qdel with a small bit of qstat -j.

If you can do what you want to do with DRMAA, then DRMAA is better.  If 
you can't, then DRMAA isn't an option.
