The following means are provided to determine the order in which the grid engine system attempts to fill up queues:
Load reporting. Administrators can select which load parameters are used to compare the load status of hosts and their queue instances. The wide range of standard load parameters that are available, and an interface for extending this set with site-specific load sensors, are described in Load Parameters.
Load scaling. Load reports from different hosts can be normalized to reflect a comparable situation. See Configuring Execution Hosts With QMON.
Load adjustment. The grid engine software can be configured to automatically correct the last reported load as jobs are dispatched to hosts. The corrected load represents the expected increase in the load situation caused by recently started jobs. This artificial increase of load can be automatically reduced as the load impact of these jobs takes effect.
