sge_qstat — Sun Grid Engine default qstat file format


sge_qstat defines the command line switches that will be used by qstat by default. If available, the default sge_qstat file is read and processed by qstat(1).

There is a cluster global and a user private sge_qstat file. The user private file has the highest precedence and is followed by the cluster global sge_qstat file. Command line switches used with qstat(1) override all switches contained in the user private or cluster global sge_qstat file.

The format of the default files is:

The default sge_qstat file may contain an arbitrary number of lines. Blank lines and lines with a '#' sign at the first column are skipped. Each line not to be skipped may contain any qstat(1) option as described in the Sun Grid Engine Reference Manual. More than one option per line is allowed.


The following is a simple example of a default sge_qstat file:

# Just show me my own running and suspended jobs
-s rs -u $user

Having defined a default sge_qstat file like this and using qstat as follows:


has the same effect as if qstat was executed with:

qstat -s rs -u <current_user>


<sge_root>/<cell>/common/sge_qstat global defaults file
$HOME/.sge_qstat	user private defaults file
