I've recently moved from an environment where PBS was used .. to one 
where I'm setting up SGE on a Linux Cluster. So I got a couple of 
questions ..

1. Because I'm using a VDT implementation of Globus, I need to have 
"reporting" activated.  And it seems like SGE writes forever to a file 
called "reporting" .. which can become very large!  Is there a mechanism 
within SGE to perhaps transparently roll it at daily intervals (like 
PBS) or delete old records? And is this likely to impact the
operation of the "poll" subroutine found within the sge.pm program that 
comes from: http://www.lesc.ic.ac.uk/projects/SGE-GT4.html ?

2. At present I just have a Queue called "all.q" to which jobs with no 
"-q" specification are sent. What I'd like to do is create 2 new queues 
called "compile" to (allow execution on the master-node only), and 
"dque" (to allow execution on any other node).  I can probably 
accomplish this using the GUI .. but I've no idea how to then make 
"dque" the queue which is used when there is no "-q" specification. And 
I've no idea how to prevent users requesting execution on "all.q".

Any assistance here would be most welcome ..
