Description In this work we present major extension of the open source TORQUE Resource Manager system. We have replaced the naive scheduler provided in the TORQUE distribution with a complex scheduling system that allows to plan job execution ahead and predict the behavior of the system. It is based on the application of job schedule, which represents jobs' execution plan. Such a functionality is very useful as the plan can be used by the users to see when and where their jobs will be executed. Moreover, created plans can be easily evaluated in order to identify possible inefficiencies. Then, repair actions can be taken immediately and the inefficiencies can be fixed, producing better schedules with respect to considered criteria.
