[GE users] Memory question

Once the calculations exceed the 2G mark on a user-submitted job 
requesting h_vnem=2G, we observed that  the job would reach a state 
where the process is still active in the node, the memory use has 
dropped dramatically, and log files are not being written, but the 
scheduler still does not kill the job. The job still shows as running in 
the qstat output.

Thanks for your quick response,
