Submitty has a daemon to run various helper jobs. The system is configured by default to run at most five jobs in parallel. When an instructor creates or edits a gradeable, the build script for the autograding configuration is automatically placed into this job queue. Similarly, when a new plagiarism detection task is created or an existing one is edited, a job is placed in the queue.

NOTE: When you re-run sudo /usr/local/submitty/.setup/, it will stop and restart the jobs daemon if it is running.
