Hi all, I have a question about spooling in sge.
It happens that I have to shutdown the machine that acts as bdb  
spooling server for my sge cluster (hardware maintenance...) and I  
hope it will take no more than 10 minutes. Unfortunately there are  
jobs running and they won't finish for the shutdown time :-( So...  
what happens if spooldb is unavailable for a while? Also, is it  
possible to change spooldb while jobs are running? In this case, is  
there a documented procedure to dump and restore the database?
