Can someone recommend a good web interface for Torque? I'm interested mostly in monitoring the status of the job queues.

We have had great success with a program called ganglia.

From their web page:

Ganglia is a scalable distributed monitoring system for high-performance computing systems such as clusters and Grids.

We use ganglia for monitoring our 2200 CPU supercomputing cluster. It's great, shows everything we need to see easily including the job queue, CPU loads, user metrics. I'd recommend it.

(If you intend to use it or you like it, please star the project, so I'll understand if it worth spend my time on it)
