When I try to submit 1000 jobs (one after the other using a submit script) the Qmaster daemon consuming all the phisical memory on the Master hosts (12 GB) and then start to swap memory. after a while it crashes...
Since I am not the one who has installed the system (and I am also a sun grid newbee....)I can't tell the configuration of the installation.

Seems to me that there is something wrong with the installation/configuration since 1000 jobs shouldn't be a problem for the SGE to handle... at least not for a 12GB Linux with 2 cpu's.
The problem is that I don't really know how to debug it.

We are using sge 6.2_u2 version.
I would highly appreciate any help since I am quite in the dark here :-)
