grixec is a script that implements a few user-space commands that permit the running of batch jobs on the local computer or on any accessible computer where the user has an ssh account. Data, results, and execution parameters of each job are stored in a new directory for each run. Basic methods to sort out job directories by project and to document results are provided.
The pbs_python package is a wrapper class for the Torque Batch System C library. With this package, you now can write utilities and extensions in Python instead of C. This package was developed to replace xpbsmon by an ASCII version named pbsmon. PBSQuery is also included in this package. This is a Python module built on top of the pbs Python module to simplify querying the batch server. There are a lot of examples included in the source package.
