Hi all,

we're still running SGE 5.3 as it works for like 3 years now. 
We have limited resources for 15 nodes (each user), we have in "Complex 
Configuration" a 'Complex' called "users" with all the users and 
in "Consumable/Fixed Attributes" for each user a value of "15", so to 
increase or decrease node's limits just changing this value will do it (or 
qconf -me global).

As the formerly admin made a script that sets variables and calls qsub, none 
of the users use "qsub" directly. This scripts calls qsub with (besides other 
qsub -l `whoami`=1
so this works, but if someone just uses qsub without "`whoami`" it won't count 
as it's consuming resources, so its possible to use as many nodes as they 
qsub -l `whoami`=1 

qstat -F |grep gc|grep username
shows the user is consuming resources so its counting.

If I don't set "whoami", SGE doesn't count it.
Any way to prevent this?

Thanks in advance
