That's because qconf isn't in your PATH yet, because you didn't source
settings.sh correctly.

There are a couple of mistakes in your commands. First you need to
define SGE_ROOT properly. Assuming your shell is bash and you installed
SGE in /usr/local/sge, your commands should be this:

source $SGE_ROOT/default/common/settings.sh

Notice I use the command "source" and that $SGE_ROOT has a "$" at the
front of it, indicating that it SGE_ROOT is a variable.

If you do that correctly, the qconf commands should work for you.

Wrong syntax of the 'ps' command. Try 'ps -ef | grep sge' instead.
Please read the man page for 'ps'. It's a very useful tool if you know
all the switches to it. You can read the man page with the command 'man ps'

Again, this is because you didn't source your settings.sh file
correctly. If you follow the steps above, 'qmon' should work.
