Yes, the sshd binary was compiled with tight integration and is


When invoked, that sshd outputs

set_admin_username() with zero length username: No such file or directory

The cluster is on a private network with a login node which has
a separate interface accessible from the public network.  We use
sshd within the cluster for its features, such as X11 forwarding,
and also because of HIPAA concerns.

Interactive jobs run via qrsh do have their resource usage properly
accounted for, and the mpich2 jobs are running as children of the
qrsh process, e.g.


where mpilscg is the name of the user's mpich2 program.
