Hi again Mark,

Nearly there! I've got /xmlstat to show some useful output. By editing
the config.xml file I got our sge setup listed. However, whenever I
click on any of the icons for our grid (we only have one, default) I
get the following error:

Resource Not Found
Resource /xmlqstat/summary~default ? for cluster default (SGE_ROOT=/sge)
Could not resolve command in /sge/bin/

    qstat -xml -u * -r -f -explain aAcE -F load_avg,num_proc

The value for SGE_ROOT is correct. The binaries for qstat are actually
in /sge/bin/darwin-x86 so I symlinked qstat to /sge/bin.
SGE_ROOT=/sge /sge/bin/qstat -xml works fine from command line for me.

Thanks so much for your help getting this setup. Any ideas what I've done wrong?
