in a shell you can use the trap command:

trap 'echo "I got the signal...do anything"' USR2

for C you have to use all the sigaddset...() ... commands to setup the proper 
behavior of your job.


h_rt should be > s_rt. You should get the signal when s_rt is reached. More you 
can find in man queue_conf. When h_rt is reached, your job will be killed.
