       sge_request - Grid Engine Enterprise Edition default request definition
       file format

       sge_request reflects the format of the files to define default request
       profiles. 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) or qsh(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) or
       qsh(1) for details).

       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 file.

       Note, that the -clear option to qsub(1) or qsh(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) or qsh(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 as
          described in the Grid Engine Enterprise Edition Reference Manual. 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 and 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
