Using the SCore SunGridEngine (SGE) environment

The SGE system can be used both to submit SCore parallel MPI jobs and also scalar and multi-threaded (SMP) jobs. The SGE scheduler keeps a track of which nodes are free and which are in use by other users. If all the resources are in use, then SGE puts your job into a queue and processes it on a First in First Out (FIFO) basis, otherwise your jobs is started immediately 2. This is the default set up. SGE is quite complex and flexible. Many other configurations are possible.
