This runs all of the tasks in the job's queue on any available slave. The tasks are run in the same order they were submitted, and this function returns a list of all the return values from the tasks, in that order.
Tasks are run in a simple round-robin fashion on the available slaves. If a slave fails while running a task, that task is automatically resubmitted to another slave. If you submit more tasks than available slaves, new slaves are automatically added to the job if the job supports this functionality (e.g., sge_qsub_job()).
