Entities responsible for distributing work across a group of systems
traditionally do not know a great deal about the ability of the
applications on those systems to complete the work in a satisfactory
fashion.  Workload management systems traditionally know a great deal
about the health of applications, but have little control over the
rate in which these applications receive work.  The Server/Application
