Integration Of Maui with TORQUE.

Maui is open source cluster scheduler for cluster and is written in C.TORQUE is open source resource manager,originally known as PBS.It is purely written in C. It manages both job and node.It provides simple scheduler.But default scheduler is not customizable.Maui is customizable and provides various algorithms and policies (for example Fairshare,backfill etc.)
While integrating maui with torque we have to specify some option at the time of installation of maui.
This options are listed below.
--prefix=< location where you want to install architecture independent file.>
--exec-prefix=<location where you want to install architecture dependent file.>
--with-pbs=<location where pbs lib directory  is located.>
--with-spooldir= <location where you want to maintain config files,logs and stat directory.>

Suppose location for installing architecture dependent as well as independent files is /opt/maui then  and suppose TORQUE is installed at location /opt/torque and I am using maui-3.2.6p20 for installation.Following are the steps for installation.
1)tar -xvf  maui-3.2.6p20.tar.gz
2)cd  maui-3.2.6p20
3)./configure --prefix=/opt/maui --exec-prefix=/opt/maui --with-pbs=/opt/torque press enter.
4)make 
5)make install

And maui is integrated with TORQUE.

Enjoy.....
