       drmaa_run_job() submits an Sun Grid Engine job with attributes defined in  the  DRMAA  job
       template,  jt.  On  success up to job_id_len bytes of the job identifier are returned into
       the buffer, job_id.

       The drmaa_run_bulk_jobs() submits a Sun Grid Engine array job very much as if the  qsub(1)
       option  `-t  start-end:incr' had been used along with the additional attributes defined in
       the DRMAA job template, jt.  The same constraints  regarding  value  ranges  are  also  in
       effect  for  the parameters start, end, and incr as for qsub(5) -t. On success a DRMAA job
       id string vector containing job identifiers for each  array  job  task  is  returned  into
       jobids.   The  job  identifiers  in  the  job  id  string  vector  can  be extracted using
       drmaa_get_next_job_id(3).  The number of identifiers in the job id string  vector  can  be
       determined  using  drmaa_get_num_job_ids(3).  Note that this function is only available in
       the 1.0 implementation.  The caller is responsible for releasing the job id string  vector
       returned into jobids using drmaa_release_job_ids(3).

       Each  time  drmaa_get_next_job_id()  is  called  it  returns into the buffer, value, up to
       value_len bytes of the next entry stored in the DRMAA job id string vector, values.   Once
       the job ids list has been exhausted, DRMAA_ERRNO_NO_MORE_ELEMENTS is returned.

       The  drmaa_get_num_job_ids()  returns into size the number of entries in the DRMAA job ids
       string vector.  This function is only available in the 1.0 implementation.

       The drmaa_release_attr_job_id() function releases all resources associated with the  DRMAA
       job  id  string vector, values. This operation has no effect on the actual Sun Grid Engine
       array job tasks.


       SGE_ROOT       Specifies the location of the Sun Grid Engine standard configuration files.

       SGE_CELL       If set, specifies the default Sun Grid Engine cell to be used. To address a
                      Sun Grid Engine cell Sun Grid Engine uses (in the order of precedence):

                             The name of the cell specified in the environment variable SGE_CELL,
                             if it is set.

                             The name of the default cell, i.e. default.

                      If set, specifies that debug information should be written  to  stderr.  In
                      addition  the  level  of  detail in which debug information is generated is

                      If set, specifies the tcp port  on  which  sge_qmaster(8)  is  expected  to
                      listen  for communication requests.  Most installations will use a services
                      map entry instead to define that port.


       Upon    successful     completion,     drmaa_run_job(),     drmaa_run_bulk_jobs(),     and
       drmaa_get_next_job_id() return DRMAA_ERRNO_SUCCESS. Other values indicate an error.  Up to
       error_diag_len characters of error related diagnosis information is then provided  in  the
       buffer error_diagnosis.


       The drmaa_run_job(), drmaa_run_bulk_jobs(), and drmaa_get_next_job_id() will fail if:

       Unexpected or internal DRMAA error, like system call failure, etc.

       Could not contact DRM system for this request.

       The specified request is not processed successfully due to authorization failure.

       The input value for an argument is invalid.

       Failed because there is no active session.

       Failed allocating memory.

       The drmaa_run_job() and drmaa_run_bulk_jobs() functions will fail if:

       The  DRM  system  indicated  that  it  is too busy to accept the job. A retry may succeed,

       The DRM system rejected the job. The job will never be accepted due to  DRM  configuration
       or job template settings.

       The drmaa_get_next_job_id() will fail if:

       When there are no more entries in the vector.
