What is Clubmask

Clubmask is a resource manager designed to allow Bproc based clusters
enjoy the full scheduling power and configuration of the Maui HPC

Clubmask uses a modified version of the Supermon resource monitoring
software to gather resource information from the cluster nodes. This
information is combined with job submission data and delivered to the
Maui scheduler. Maui issues job control commands back to Clubmask, which
then starts or stops the job scripts using the Bproc environment. 

Clubmask also provides builtin support for a supermon2ganglia translator
that allows a standard Ganlgia  web backend to contact supermon and get
XML data that will disply through the Ganglia web interface.

Clubmask is currently running on around 10 clusters, varying in size
from 8 to 128 nodes, and has been tested up to 5000 jobs.
