this is an interesting approach. If you have only a really few fixed 
applications, it may be a solution to put the job script (which is fixed and 
setup by the administrator) in a startup method of a queue. You have a job of 
type x - submit to queue x. And the mentioned script in the qsub command is 
just the input file to the program. But this is an advanced setup.

It's a reference to the man pages, which are most likely already installed, 
when you have SGE already running. Try: man sched_conf  But to "nice" and 
"load_thresholds", you'll need some insight to the used operating system. E.g. 
for Linux you may look at IBM Developer documentation 101:
