"The Workload Management System (gLite WMS) is a software service of the gLite suite which is responsible for distributing and managing tasks across computing and storage resources available on a Grid. WMS assigns user jobs to CEs and SEs belonging to a Grid environment in a convenient fashion, so that:
- jobs are always executed on resources that match the job requirements
- grid-wide load balance is maintained, i.e. jobs are evenly and efficiently distributed across the entire Grid." <ref>http://web.infn.it/gLiteWMS/</ref>
