If you want SGE to know the no. of CPU's used by tgicl you could use a 
new complex (qconf -sc). And for restricting the usage of CPUs per tgicl 
program you may force to request the complex by your program. Then you 
could set the complex value at host level and making it consumable 
should do the job.

Hope that helps.
