[GE users] Capping logfile size

Thanks. This is close to what I want to do but not quite the same. I
want to send an alert email about logfile size even if the job is still
running; it seems like this would only allow me to send the email after
the job is complete. Is there a way of doing that?

if you would just like to kill the job, you could set s_fsize in the  
queue configuration. The any further write would fail. But this will  
affect all file accesses of the job, not only the logfile. Reading  
bigger files should be possible though.

If you only want to write a warning mail after the job, you could put  
it in queue or global epilog and check therein $SGE_STDOUT_PATH and  
$SGE_STDERR_PATH
