The nature and functions of Service Domain Manager (SDM), an add-on component for Sun Grid Engine 6.2u5, are described in DanT's GridBlog. He writes that SDM is designed to allow for services of all types to share resources with each other. He explains that each cluster has a set of performance metrics specified via service level objectives (SLOs).
