After SGE was killed by the OOM killed, the file (a berkely db file) in my
cluster was 1.4GB. I did a db_dump and db_load, on this file, resulting in
a much smaller file.
However, this then raised the question -- how is this file maintained?
Presumably, it holds the information on jobs in all states (queued, running
and finished). How do the finished jobs get removed from this file?
Obviously, I don't want the file to grow without limit.
We are now putting about 50k jobs into our small cluster every day (many
finish running in a fraction of a second).
