The admin pages state that it is possible to specify multiple clusters in the universe file. Currently, we are investigating if we can couple the university HPC platform to galaxy, to handle usage peaks. It would be ideal if the job manager would check the load of the dedicated cluster (eg queue length) and send jobs to the second cluster when load is above a threshold.

Does such an approach exists already, or will it become available in the near future? As far as I understand, it is now only possible to specify which jobs run on which cluster, without dynamic switching?
