Hi again,

one thing more I also want to throw in, is the (strange?) setting of the h_cpu 
limit by SGE. According to the man page of queue_conf it's multiplied by the 
number of slots requested by the job. In fact, I just played around a bit and 
found, it's multiplied by the number of slots taken from one machine instead. I 

Having h_cpu=20 and a request for four slots will give by a 1-1-1-1 
distribution to four machines on each machine a hard limit of 20, hence 80 in 

When you get 2-2 instead, to each slot the applied limit is 40 and your job 
will consume a total amount of 160.

Is this behavior intended, or can anyone explain why it is this way? (Linux on
