correct, it depends on the size of the accounting-file, and with  
logrotation it might be gone already.

Yes, it's only a short history (adjustable in "finished_jobs" in  
SGE's configuration).

- Your users (or you) can setup SGE to receive an eMail for every  
finsihed or aborted job.

- You can use ARCo, AFAIK this information is also available there.  
But it will need additonal installations.
