what dou you mean by "debug"? Usually it happens to users who are new  
to a cluster to request too much resources and they want to  
investigate why the jobs aren't starting. One test could be:

$ qalster -w v <jobid>

instead to get a reply whether there are any suitables queues at all,  
"-w p" to get a reply under the current load. In special cases I turn  
the schedd_job_info on for some minutes for investigation and turn it  
off again.
