Alas, it doesn't tell me what suspended means.  Tell me if I'm interpreting
the man page and your reply correctly:

    * "off" means jobs which are started before the end time will continue

    * "suspended" means that running jobs will be suspended.  Will new jobs
      be accepted?

"sun grid engine suspended queue" which led me to


    reuti> Searching the mail archive will also reveal much information.

The list archives at
