   I have  a cluster with sge 5.3p5 installed.  I set the memory hard limit to 1.5 GB for the queue through h_data limit.  But the job seems to be using 1.9 GB as per top command and is still going ok. Also output of qhost shows 1.9 GB MEMUSE as well. I was expecting SGE to kill the job once it exceeded 1.5 GB.   Is there any way to enforce the limit of memory usage to 1.5 GB?  Thanks.
