NAME

       sge_request - Sun Grid Engine default request definition file format

DESCRIPTION

       sge_request  reflects the format of the files to define default request
       profiles. If available, default request files are  read  and  processed
       during  job  submission  before  any submit options embedded in the job
       script and before any options in the qsub(1) or qsh(1) command-line are
       considered.  Thus,  the  command-line  and  embedded script options may
       overwrite the settings in the default request  files  (see  qsub(1)  or
       qsh(1) for details).

       There is a cluster global, a user private and a working directory local
       default request definition file. The working  directory  local  default
       request  file  has  the  highest precedence and is followed by the user
       private and then the cluster global default request file.

       Note, that the -clear option to  qsub(1)  or  qsh(1)  can  be  used  to
       discard any previous settings at any time in a default request file, in
       the embedded script flags  or  in  a  qsub(1)  or  qsh(1)  command-line
       option.

       The format of the default request definition files is:

       o  The  default request files may contain an arbitrary number of lines.
          Blank lines and lines with a  '#'  sign  in  the  first  column  are
          skipped.

       o  Each  line  not  to  be  skipped  may  contain any qsub(1) option as
          described in the Sun Grid Engine Reference  Manual.  More  than  one
          option  per  line  is  allowed.  The  batch script file and argument
          options to the batch script are not considered  as  qsub(1)  options
          and thus are not allowed in a default request file.

EXAMPLES

       The following is a simple example of a default request definition file:

       =====================================================
       # Default Requests File

       # request group to be sun4 and a CPU-time of 5hr
       -l arch=sun4,s_cpu=5:0:0

       # don't restart the job in case of system crashes
       -r n
       =====================================================

       Having  defined  a  default  request  definition  file  like  this  and
       submitting a job as follows:

       qsub test.sh

       would have precisely the same effect as if the job was submitted with:

       qsub -l arch=sun4,s_cpu=5:0:0 -r n test.sh
