For the life of me I cannot figure out how to emulate PBS/Torque's "-l mem=XXGB" function in the grid engine. I want the amount of memory a user requests to be enforced. I also cannot figure out how to enforce this on parallel tasks. Unfortunately if I can't figure this out I'm going to end up switching to Torque/Maui which I'd rather not do because I very much like SGE.

I also very much like the way SLURM does things (specifically spwaning parallel tasks) and was wondering if there was a way to integrate this with SGE. 

Thanks in advance.
