I am reading the admin guide slowly as there are so many distractions
at work, and that is just one of the machines i have to administer and
know nothing at all about, but i am coming to terms with it

mpi-openmp jobs that use large memory models to do reservoir
simulations, we do not run that many on that machine, they will be
around 4-5 jobs queued in/day ranging from 5-18-48-72 hours jobs. i
have not read the failover capabilities yet, can i even run that on a
low end machine, would that be useful to have, i am not sure yet?

we are a team of 8 linux admins managing around 4000 nodes in
different clusters of 128 nodes each, almost all of the admins know
pbs inside/out, and load leveler but have problems with introducing
new software to the production environment, the main reason i have
installed SGE in first place was the slow response from altiare in
giving me an evluation license for the Altix.
