Hi Atle,

so far there is no direct counterpart for DAGMan in SGE. 
Nevertheless interdependent jobs can be used and are used at many 
sites. Just have a look at the -hold_jid <wc_job_list> option 
described in qsub(1).

With 6.2 improved job dependencies amongst array jobs will be 
available through the -hold_jid_ad  <wc_job_list> option. For 
details on rationale/implementation/functionality look at
