Cloudmesh PBS provides an easy mechanism to interface with queuing systems. It integrates nicely with cmd3 and therefore provides a convenient shell and commandline interface.
The advantage of Cloudmesh PBS is that it can start pbs jobs on remote machines while using job templates to do so. Jobs submitted with Cloudmesh PBS are entered in a local database and their status on the remote machines can be monitored. Thus even if the job disappears from the queuing system either due to system issues or because they are long finished a record of it is maintained. In addition to the cmd3 commandshell we provide a simple python API. A REST interface is being developed.
