       sge_request - Grid Engine default request definition file format


       sge_request  reflects  the  format  of the files defining default request profiles.  These
       apply to qsub(1), qsh(1), qrsh(1), and  qlogin(1),  but  for  convenience,  only  qsub  is
       mentioned  below.   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)  command-line  are considered. Thus, the command-line and embedded script
       options may overwrite the settings in the default request files (see qsub(1) for details).
       However,  where options may be repeated and accumulated, typically they are collected into
       a list from the various sources, which may not be what you want.

       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

       Note,  that  the  -clear option to qsub(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)  command-
       line option.

       The format of the default request definition files is:

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

       •  Each line not to be skipped may contain any qsub(1) option. 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.


       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, submitting a job as follows:


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

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


                     global defaults file
       $HOME/.sge_request   user private defaults file
       $cwd/.sge_request    cwd directory defaults file
