This is not the sleep statement you mentioned above. The best way is  
so change only thing at a time and observe the results.

- Make h_vmem consumable again and submit a serial job with a plain  
"sleep 90" - no mpirun or alike, no requests. On the node where the  
job runs you should see in `qhost -F h_vmem` the correct value with  
the subtracted default.

- Submit the same job, this time with an extra request of 8GB. Is  
qhost showing the correct output again?

- Submit the same job as a parallel one without request: do you see  
on each of the granted nodes the correct subtraction?

- Submit the same job as a parallel one with the 8 GB request: do you  
see on each of the granted nodes the correct subtraction?

If all this runs well, we can start to use mpirun. Is the mpihello  
the one from the sunsource site? It's supposed to run endless, as  
it's main purpose is to see ther correct tight integration of the job  
into SGE. Often the parallel test josbs are too short to ssh to a  
node and check all the things. Therefore it's intended to be killed  
only by a qdel.
