[GE users] acct_reserved_usage

Hi all,

I have sge6.2u3. I have set the execd_param in the sge conf to have  ACCT_RESERVED_USAGE=TRUE.

 When I submit a 10 second "sleep" job, the cpu time reported by qacct still reads a small number - rather than "wallclock x slots"

Is this a bug? I would expect the cpu time to equal the wallclock time once I set ACCT_RESERVED_USAGE=TRUE. Or has the behaviour changed from what I remember?

Also, I noticed that the SHARETREE_RESERVED_USAGE has been deprecated. Why? Is there an alternative way to measure "total slots-consumed-time" rather than CPU time? It seems to me that this is the obvious thing to measure in a cluster (you don't care how much CPU people burn - just how much of the cluster they block other users from)
