       hostgroup - host group entry file format


       A  host group entry is used to merge host names to groups.  Each  host  group  entry  file
       defines one group. Inside a group definition file you can  also  reference  groups.  These
       groups  are  called subgroups. A subgroup is referenced by the sign "@" as first character
       of the name.

       A list of currently-configured host group  entries  can  be  displayed  via  the  qconf(1)
       -shgrpl  option.  The contents of each listed host group entry can be shown via the -shgrp
       switch. The output follows the hostgroup format description. New host group entries can be
       created  and existing can be modified via the -ahgrp, -mhgrp, -dhgrp and -?attr options to

       Note, Grid Engine allows backslashes  (\)  be  used  to  escape  newline  characters.  The
       backslash and the newline are replaced with a space character before any interpretation.


       A host group entry contains the following parameters:

       The  group_name  defines  the  host group name. Host group names have to begin with an '@'
       character as explained for hostgroup_name in sge_types(5).

       The names of all hosts and host groups (see host_identifier  in  sge_types(5))  which  are
       members  of  the  group.  Only whitespace is allowed as list separators. The default value
       for this parameter is NONE.

       Note, if the first character of the host_identifier is an "@" sign the  name  is  used  to
       reference a hostgroup(5) which is taken as a subgroup of this group.


       This is a typical host group entry:

       group_name @bigMachines

       hostlist @solaris64 @solaris32 fangorn balrog

       The  entry  will  define  a new host group called @bigMachines. In this host group are the
       host fangorn, balrog and all members of the host groups @solaris64 and @solaris32.
