System overview

Three major components are supposed to make up the system. These are: node-server software, the central scheduler, and some client software for the users. This is sketched in Figure 2.1. For now, only the node-server and the scheduler have been implemented. Those are the back-end components, and those are the really interesting ones. There is no need to build a front-end before we have the back-end working.
