On Solaris machines (sol-sparc, sol-sparc64,
sol-x86) qhost displays incorrect values for swap
(compared to the values delivered by top):

qhost output:
 % qhost
HOSTNAME                ARCH         NCPU  LOAD
global                  -               -     -
    -       -       -       -
balrog                  sol-sparc64  2.00  0.21

bilbur                  sol-sparc    1.00  0.03

1023.0M  192.0M  512.0M    7.0M

top output:
Memory: 1024M real, 659M free, 54M swap in use,
1746M swap free

Memory: 256M real, 47M free, 36M swap in use,
1175M swap free

Memory: 1024M real, 832M free, 97M swap in use,
1220M swap free

If a value is 0, qhost seems to output no value at
all, see SWAPUS for host balrog.
qstat -F deliveres the following for balrog:

The second part of the bug got fixed with the bug fix: 824.
The internal parsing could not handle the B character and
reported an error and qhost printed nothing in case of an
qhost will print now ?E in case of an error.

Changing priority

Grid Engine currently uses the swapctl() interfcase to get information
about free nad used swap space. The interface itself seems not to
report the correct values. Tools like "top" correct these values and
report  different values.

Need to analyze in detail how to determine swap space on Solaris.
