Compute clusters are used to solve large, computation-intensive problems. These systems are shared due to a large investment in resources to set up and maintain these systems. Often, a job queue or batch system, such as a Portable Batch System (PBS) is used to enable sharing the cluster resources among many researchers. This project provides a mobile application which allows the user to view the status of the jobs on a cluster. Also, the ability to perform some simple administrative tasks is included. The application is written for Android devices, using the Java programming language. This is a good case study for developing a medium complexity application with performance issues.
