I've been Linux user for over 10 years, and been computing since around age 11. I got my start in programming by learning Perl on my Debian machine in high school. Since then I've learned numerous languages including C, C++, and Python. I've also dabbled in Java and assembly.

I have a bachelors degree in Computer Engineering from Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, BC, Canada.

I've worked in Japan as a CAD software developer in C++ on Windows. Not my favorite environment, but an interesting project never the less.

I'm currently employed by a Vancouver-based biotech startup working primarily on systems level projects but doing my fair share of software development.

My favorite programming language is Python and I use it nearly every day. My recent interests lie in virtualization, hpc, and large-scale systems management. I'm an active contributor to the Bcfg2 project.

comment How to limit jobs in an indicated queue in SGE
I'm not sure I understand your question. You want jobs to wait for a queue to become available, up until you reach a certain number of jobs, and only then utilize the other queue?

comment Sun Grid Engine (SGE) Jobs Not Visible After Adding virtual_free
There's not an easy way to do that. Personally I've made a bunch of custom commands that parse the qstat -j -xml output and display what exactly I'm looking for as the standard qstat output doesn't cover all possible use cases.

comment Howto set up SGE for CUDA devices?
Care to share your load sensor solution? Is there some output of nvidia-smi you can monitor to see how many GPUs are actually in use? or?

comment Sun GRID Engine - submit jobs that 'prefer the powerful' machine instead weaker machines
Read man sched_conf for details about that. But basically the way it works is that you can assign the same seq_no to multiple machines. In that case the load is used as a secondary sort method.
