You are quite correct, they are completely different animals.
Using the time honoured method of quickly scanning the FAQ and then making
sweeping and possibly incorrect pronouncements on a project about which I
previously knew nothing I reckon that the Java based project is actually both
a Resource Manager (like PBS/Torque) and a batch scheduler (like Maui/Moab
For instance, their FAQ says:
# 2.4 Where do I install the various RPMs?
# The Maui Scheduler "server" RPM should be installed on one node of your
# cluster that you've decided should be the control node.
# The Maui Scheduler "client" RPM should be installed on interactive nodes of
# your cluster from which users will submit jobs and query system status.
# The Maui Scheduler "drone" RPM should be installed on all compute nodes of
# your cluster where batch jobs are run.
So it looks like it's intended to be the complete kit to run jobs on compute
nodes on a cluster.
Looking at their CVS tree and files to download it looks a bit, umm, slow on
the development front, the last release was 2003.
