In a Computational Grid, it is not easy to maintain grid- wide control over the number of executing jobs, as well as a global view of the status of submitted jobs, due to the heterogeneity in resource type, availability, and access policies. This paper describes the design and implementation of JobQueue, which is a Computational Grid-wide queuing system, or metaqueuing system, implemented in Legion. JobQueue is unique because of its ability to span multiple administrative domains. It can also be reconfigured dynamically along a number of dimensions and in the general case does not require special privileges to create, facilitating new flexibility for Grid users.
