They all mirror to this one file server based on a snapshot they take at
that time as the data is constantly changing.

Once they all complete their mirror to this file server, that file server
is then instructed by ssh with key auth to rsync that data set remotely.

The file server can handle any number of local dumps on to it, but if more
than 1 local machine instructs it to rsync remotely, that is where the trouble

Dropping the jobs via ssh into 'at' for example would be nice if only 'at'
sequentially executed the job queue.

Batch still might execute more than one job at a time, correct? The qjob script
looks promising...

Thanks guys!
