[torquedev] Data-Is-String format

pbs_sched is not the only scheduler used with TORQUE. In fact it is probably the least used scheduler with TORQUE. (I have no empirical data to confirm that but I would guess Maui and Moab make up the majority of schedulers)

Next the DIS is what is used for server to MOM and MOM to MOM communication. These daemons would have to be rewritten as well to access the database.

Of course, a database has some overhead.
But, since not all job information is used in scheduling, pbs_sched can
retrieve only the
information it needs such as job id, submission time. So this can
greatly reduce huge amount of data
in communication. What do you think?
