[gridengine users] submitting paralle jobs

Check the "job_is_first_task" variable in your PE definition.  That 
changes the behavior of the master job with respect to SGE.

Dear all,
Does anyone know why when submitting a parallel job using a PE, the master 
job runs as an extra job and not counted for.
For example, when submitting a job which asks for 8 cores, I see 9 jobs 
running, using “qstat –g t”, a master job and 8 slaves!
Thanks in advance,
