QTASK(5)           Grid Engine Enterprise Edition File Formats          QTASK(5)

       qtask - file format of the qtask file.

       A qtask file defines which commands are submitted to Grid Engine
       Enterprise Edition for remote execution by qtcsh(1).  The qtask file
       optionally may contain qrsh(1) command-line parameters. These parameters
       are passed to the qrsh(1) command being used by qtcsh to submit the

       A cluster global qtask file defining cluster wide defaults and a user
       specific qtask file eventually overriding and enhancing those definitions
       are supported. The cluster global file resides at
       <sge_root>/<cell/common/qtask, while the user specific file can be found
       at ~/.qtask. An exclamation mark preceding command definitions in the
       cluster global can be used by the administrator to deny overriding of
       such commands by users.

       The principle format of the qtask file is that of a tabulated list. Each
       line starting with a '#' character is a comment line. Each line despite
       comment lines defines a command to be started remotely.

       Definition starts with the command name that must match exactly the name
       as typed in a qtcsh(1) command-line. Pathnames are not allowed in qtask
       files. Hence absolute or relative pathnames in qtcsh(1) command-lines
       always lead to local execution even if the commands itself are the same
       as defined in the qtask files.

       The command name can be followed by an arbitrary number of qrsh(1) option
       arguments which are passed on to qrsh(1) by qtcsh(1).

       An exclamation mark prefixing the command in the cluster global qtask
       file prevents overriding by the user supplied qtask file.

       The following qtask file

              netscape -l a=solaris64 -v DISPLAY=myhost:0
              grep -l h=filesurfer
              verilog -l veri_lic=1

       designates the applications netscape, grep and verilog for interactive
       remote execution through Grid Engine Enterprise Edition. Netscape is
       requested to run only on Solaris64 architectures with the DISPLAY
       environment variable set to 'myhost:0', grep only runs on the host named
       'filesurfer' and verilog requests availability of a verilog license in
       order to get executed remotely.
