[Bioclusters] limiting job memory size on G5s

Hi Chris,
did you get anywhere with this request?
We have tried a test PBS cluster and cannot get it to limit the 
execution size either, although we are still trying to get them to 
make this happen.

Hi Barry,

This is probably a Grid Engine issue; enforcing memory usage limits for
the purpose of sending suspend/terminate signals etc. has long been part
of the SGE feature set.

You may want to post this message to the Grid Engine users mailing list:
   users at gridengine.sunsource.net to see if anyone else is doing memory
limit enforcement on Mac OS X with SGE 6

I did a brief search through the open bug reports but did not see any
open issues that match your problem.

That said though, I've only seen jobs trip SGE queues into error state
'E' when the job itself failed in a spectacular manner. It's odd that it
errors out several queues and the runs on a different box.

If you are willing to share your test code I'd be interested in trying
to replicate on one of the G5 clusters I have access to.
