Usually any member machine of a grid can be
used to submit jobs to the grid and initiate grid queries. However,
in some grid systems, this function is implemented as a separate
component installed on “submission nodes” or “submission clients.”
When a grid is built using dedicated resources rather than scavenged
resources, separate submission software is usually installed on the
user’s desktop or workstation.
