Roy Dragseth of the University of Tromso announces:

The torque roll is now ready for download.

Get it from

The roll contains the latest torque and maui releases:

  • Torque v2.3.6
  • Maui v3.2.6p21

The source code of the roll can now be accessed from a public mercurial repository:

The Rocks way of installing the roll is as usual to reinstall your frontend and compute nodes, but you can also use the chain of commands to install a new roll on an existing frontend (with or without a previous version of the roll):

# rocks add roll /path/to/torque/roll.iso
# rocks enable roll torque
# rocks create distro
# kroll torque | sh
# reboot

Comments are greatly appreciated.
