NAME

       qtask - file format of the qtask file.

DESCRIPTION

       A  qtask file defines which commands are submitted to Sun 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 <sge_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 Sun 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.
