Looks like someone desired an output like the showq of Maui.  
Therefore it's only in the examples directory and not an official  
tool in $SGE_ROOT/utilbin. Although it reads "0 of 3936 hosts" it's  
slots and not hosts in real I think.

What would you like to get here? The problem is, that SGE is flexible  
as you can have multiple queues/slots per machine. One output you  
could use is the one from:

$ qstat -g c

I'm not sure, how fix the assignment of queues/slots/hosts in Maui/ 
Torque* is and whether it's more suited for such an enviroment to  
have this output.

*) Torque is another queuingsystem and needs an external scheduler  
like Maui or Moab for a more sophisticated setup.
