This paper presents the design and implementation of a new management system called CRONO aimed at small and mid-size GNU/Linux cluster installations owned by non-specialized users. CRONO implements only the basic management services needed to share a cluster among several users and is optimized for machines with up to 64 nodes, being therefore easy to install, maintain and use, while still being highly configurable. We also show how to configure CRONO for an environment with one and other with three clusters, as well as some maintenance procedures to give an idea of the simplicity of both tasks.
