As far as I know, the only way a queue will go into error state is due 
to a job failure.   When a job fails, SGE looks at why.  For certain 
failure reasons, SGE will assume that the job is at fault, and put the 
job in error state.  For certain other reasons, it will assume there's 
something wrong with the queue/host and put the queue in error state. 
Unfortunately, its not always correct in its logic.  Then again, its 
impossible for SGE to always be right  (if it can't access the working 
directory for a job, it might be because the node is missing an NFS 
mount point, or it might be because the job requested a working 
directory that doesn't exist).
