Bigger doesn't imply better. Bigger often is a sign of obesity, of lost control, of overcomplexity, of cancerous cells

SGE is a complex system and value of various tips depend on how you use it. Very few tips are univeral.

Use command qconf -msconf
sge_qstat defines the command line switches that will be used by qstat by default. If available, the default sge_qstat file is read and processed by qstat(1).
There is a cluster global and a user private sge_qstat file. The user private file has the highest precedence and is followed by the cluster global sge_qstat file. Command line switches used with qstat(1) override all switches contained in the user private or cluster global sge_qstat file.
The default sge_qstat file may contain an arbitrary number of lines, although it is unclear what is the value of lines after the first. Blank lines and lines with a '#' sign at the first column are skipped. Each line can contain set of qstat(1) options. More than one option per line is allowed.
Here is an example of a sge_qstat default options file (note the leading blank before the first "-"):===================================================== # Just show me my own running and suspended jobs -s rs -u $USER =====================================================Having defined a default sge_qstat file like this and using qstat without parametersqstathas the same effect as if qstat was executed with:qstat -s rs -u <current_user>

qalter -w v <jobid>This command enlists the reasons why a job is not dispatchable in principle.
For this purpose a dry scheduling run is performed.
The special with this dry scheduling run is that all consumable resources
(also slots) are considered to be fully available for this job. Similarly all load values are ignored because they are varying.
Job or queue errors are indicated by an uppercase "E" in the qstat output. A job enters the error state when Grid Engine tried to execute a job in a queue, but it failed for a reason that is specific to the job. A queue enters the error state when Grid Engine tried to execute a job in a queue, but it failed for a reason that is specific to the queue. Grid Engine offers a set of possiblities for users and administrators to get diagnosis information in case of job execution errors. Since both the queue and the job error state result from a failed job execution the diagnosis possibilities are applicable to both types of error states:Since Grid Engine 6.0 for jobs in error state a one-line error reason is available through
qstat -j | grep errorWith a 6.0 this is the recommended first source of diagnosis information for the end user.
qstat -explain EWith a 6.0 this is the recommended first source of diagnosis information for administrators in case of queue errors.
qacct -jto get information about the job error from Grid Engine job accounting.

qconf -sp pename Show the configuration for the specified parallel environment. qconf -spl Show a list of all currently configured parallel environments. qconf -ap pename Add a new parallel environment. qconf -Ap filename Add a parallel environment from file filename. qconf -mp pename Modify the specified parallel environment using an editor. qconf -Mp filename Modify a parallel environment from file filename. qconf -dp pename Delete the specified parallel environment.
Based on the status of the job displayed, you can control the job by the following actions:
The Grid Engine software also sometimes lets users set priorities among their own jobs. A user who submits several jobs can specify, for example, that job 3 is the most important and that jobs 1 and 2 are equally important but less important than job 3.
