There is a Torque/Maui roll for Rocks maintained by Roy Dragseth at the 
University of Tromsø.

Home page is:


I believe that Rocks Rolls need to be loaded at install time, so if you want 
to retrofit it then you'll be able to compile it from source as you would on 
a normal cluster.

Rocks is not in my good books at the moment as it has the undocumented 
"feature" of nuking all partition tables on any disks it can get its grubby 
hands onto *BEFORE* asking you what you want to do with your (now blank) 
partitions. Not even Windows does that (in my experience).

Thankfully gpart exists, otherwise I would be even more annoyed than I am now 

Rocks v4 is based on Centos 4 which itself is a rebuild of Redhat EL 4 (which 
still doesn't have XFS enabled in its kernels, mumble mumble..)
