Hello Erik!

Any chance one may have a look at your scripts ?

Your solution appeals to me more than having to embedd alot of logic into the job scripts themselves.

I'd prefer even more to have this tied into the "PE" logics of SGE where one could specify a "over-ride" kill-signal for jobs running under a specific "PE" environment. That makes alot more senst to me...

we use something like
suspend_method    /usr/local/gridengine/util/abaqus_signal.sh suspend $job_pid
resume_method     /usr/local/gridengine/util/abaqus_signal.sh resume $job_pid
terminate_method  /usr/local/gridengine/util/abaqus_signal.sh kill $job_pid
to achieve similar things - if you do not have application specific queues, you need your script to find out somehow if to kill $job_pid or to touch your .isstopping-files.  See the man page of queue_conf for more command line parameters.
