I run SGE out of GPFS on one cluster, though I'm planning to move the
binaries out of that file system, due to stability problems.  As far as
SGE goes, GPFS seems like any other file system.  If you want to start
SGE from GPFS at boot-up, you'll need to to put the start-up command
in the script "/var/mmfs/etc/mmfsup.scr", and probably a stop command
in "/var/mmfs/etc/mmfsdown.scr".  GPFS typically won't get mounted
until a minute or two after the system's finished booting, so starting
SGE from "/etc/rc<something>.d" won't work.  The "mmfup.scr" will run
after GPFS has finally mounted.
