The 10 second thing is suspicious.  If you think it's related to the 
scheduler, you can try killing sge_schedd and seeing if the messages go 
away.  You can then later run the sge_schedd binary and it will start up 

Out of curiosity, what userid is 'sge_schedd' running as?  Is it running 
as user 'remote'?

You can try running netstat on the qmaster host to see what's 
connecting.  However, if you have a lot of compute nodes, there may be a 
lot of connections.
