as Mark mentioned, it's stored in the accounting file. Besides this, you
can also find it when you request "qacct -j <jobid>". With a Tight
Integration, every "qrsh -inherit ..." call would get an entry in the
accounting file, and you would also need to add them up to get the right
timings in total for a parallel job.

Although this will list the nodes, you might have to look at the used
CPU times to check, whether you got an uneven distribution, i.e.  
something like:

node01 2
node02 1
node03 1

Please find enclosed a modified version of a script which I posted
already some time ago. By running it with "./accounting -j <jobid>"  
you will get the used hostnames and each times besides the sum.
