[GE users] parallel job woes

Hi *,

we observe a problem with huge parallel jobs (>50 subtasks). Each
parallel task requires round about 500MB h_vmem (h_vmem is configured as
consumable host resource). So that's the actual memory requirement. But
starting the subtasks via qrsh in the master process uses >50MB virtual
memory for every connection. That's why the job gets killed.

Is there a way to specify a different memory requirement for the master
task? Or maybe switch off memory enforcing for the master task as this
is actually SGE internal mem consumption?

Thanks & Cheers,
