user - Grid Engine user entry file format
A user entry is used to store ticket and usage information on a per-user basis. Maintaining user entries for all users participating in a Grid Engine system is required if Grid Engine is operated under a user share tree policy. If the enforce_user cluster configuration parameter is set to auto, a user object for the submitting user will be created automatically during job submission, if one does not already exist. The auto_user_oticket, auto_user_fshare, auto_user_default_project, and auto_user_delete_time cluster configuration parameters will be used as default attributes of the new user object. A list of currently configured user entries can be displayed via the qconf(1) -suserl option. The contents of each listed user entry can be shown via the -suser switch. The output follows the user format description. New user entries can be created, and existing ones can be modified, via the -auser, -muser and -duser options to qconf(1). 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 user entry contains four parameters: name The user name in the format for user_name in sge_types(5). oticket The number of override tickets currently assigned to the user. fshare The current functional share of the user. default_project The default project of the user. delete_time Note: Deprecated, may be removed in future release. The wall-clock time when this user will be deleted, expressed as the number of seconds elapsed since January 1, 1970. If set to zero, the affected user is a permanent user. If set to one, the user currently has active jobs. For additional information about automatically created users, see the enforce_user and auto_user_delete_time parameters in sge_conf(5).
