There's always Open Grid Engine ;) It's mostly used to schedule one
job after another to modulate efficiency, but jobs can be scheduled
for certain allotted time periods, machines and queues. A lot of
learning curve to implement all the features well though.
It's not really built to have a profile for each machine, though it is
certainly possible but maybe not pretty.
Symantec Netbackup also offers scripting. Instead of running a
backup, it would run a script and that could be pretty with reporting,
but costs money. Not any extra if you already have it though.
Maybe Amanda has a similar option. It could be pretty, free, and do
the job well if it's like NetBackup... and doesn't have to actually
back up anything.
