PBS Multi-server architecture page created

Hello All,

We are starting work on PBS multi-server (active active, load balancing) project. Please find some initial thoughts about his architectural considerations, at: https://pbspro.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/PD/pages/1507164161/PBS+Pro+multi-server+project+architecture+and+design

Currently, we have uploaded an initial set of architecture considerations. We would love to hear about clarifications and constructive feedback. Over time, we will add more details on every section as sub-pages to this root page.

Thanks and Regards,

The initial POC code (which works only for job submission) is here: https://github.com/subhasisb/pbspro/tree/multi_server_teamwork


There has been significant architectural approach changes in this project. Please review the updated design slides at https://openpbs.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/PD/pages/1507164161/PBS+Pro+multi-server+project+architecture+and+design.

Particularly, we would like inputs, feedback and ideas on how to generate unique jobids across the multiple server instances. A few ideas are listed around the end of the slide-deck, but they all have their pros and cons and hence we would like inputs for a choice.
