As Ben stated, the default behavior of qstat changed from 6.0 to 6.1
such that it now only displays jobs (pending, running, etc) for the user
running the command.

qstat -u '*'
qstat -u \*

Will give you jobs for all users. There's a FAQ entry that discusses how
to change the default behavior.

'qstat -f' should also only display your jobs and all nodes, use 'qstat
-f -u \*' to get all jobs and all nodes.

The normal behavior of qstat without the '-f' is to return only
running or queued jobs.  If there are no jobs you will get no output.
