I would highly recommend upgrading to something more recent than 6.0u5.  
Even 6.0u8 would be an improvement.  6.2u1, which will be coming out 
soon, is what I would recommend.  The 6.1 branch is only receiving bug 
fixes now.  The Sun Grid Engine product is our build of the Grid Engine 
open source project.  Same source tree, different binaries.  SGE is sold 
on a subscription basis that includes support costs.

Good places for SGE info:
