I have a request from a user who would like to know if there is a way to automatically have the job restarted if the app it executes exits for any reason other than from a client-side termination of the job (qdel, breaking a qsub ?sync, etc.) or with a exit code 0.  The app is not very reliable, but it must continue to run without intervention.

I know that SGE can restart a job if the execd terminates abnormally (e.g., server crash), but was wondering if there is an interesting way to make SGE behave this way without having to customize his submission script to have some kind of conditional logic to resubmit.

Any thoughts?
