NAME

       qtask - file format of the qtask file.

DESCRIPTION

       A  qtask  file  defines which commands are submitted to Grid Engine for
       remote execution by qtcsh(1).  The qtask file  optionally  may  contain
       qrsh(1)  command-line  parameters.  These  parameters are passed to the
       qrsh(1) command being used by qtcsh to submit the commands.

       A cluster global qtask file defining cluster wide defaults and  a  user
       specific   qtask   file   eventually  overriding  and  enhancing  those
       definitions  are  supported.  The  cluster  global  file   resides   at
       <ge_root>/<cell/common/qtask, while the user specific file can be found
       at ~/.qtask. An exclamation mark preceding command definitions  in  the
       cluster  global  can be used by the administrator to deny overriding of
       such commands by users.

FORMAT

       The principle format of the qtask file is that  of  a  tabulated  list.
       Each  line  starting  with a ’#’ character is a comment line. Each line
       despite comment lines defines a command to be started remotely.

       Definition starts with the command name that  must  match  exactly  the
       name  as typed in a qtcsh(1) command-line. Pathnames are not allowed in
       qtask files. Hence absolute or relative pathnames in qtcsh(1)  command-
       lines  always  lead  to local execution even if the commands itself are
       the same as defined in the qtask files.

       The command name can be followed by  an  arbitrary  number  of  qrsh(1)
       option arguments which are passed on to qrsh(1) by qtcsh(1).

       An  exclamation  mark prefixing the command in the cluster global qtask
       file prevents overriding by the user supplied qtask file.

EXAMPLES

       The following qtask file

              netscape -l a=sol-sparc64 -v DISPLAY=myhost:0
              grep -l h=filesurfer
              verilog -l veri_lic=1

       designates the applications netscape, grep and verilog for  interactive
       remote execution through Grid Engine. Netscape is requested to run only
       on Solaris64 architectures with the DISPLAY environment variable set to
       ’myhost:0’,  grep  only runs on the host named ’filesurfer’ and verilog
       requests availability of a verilog license in  order  to  get  executed
       remotely.
