[gridengine users] SoGE 8.1.8 - Forking script from within prolog does not work for interactive jobs while worked with SGE 6.1u6

Hallo to distinguished forum members,

I hope you can assist me.

Since we have migrated to SoGE 8.1.8 from SGE 6.1u6 we experience some issue when try to fork a special script from within a prolog script.

We have the following line of code in the prolog script:

/usr/bin/sudo -u sgeadmin /home/sgeadmin/bin/getmemusage.sh ${JOB_ID} ${SGE_ROOT} &

This script is forked and does memory monitoring by tracing it during job lifecycle.
While it worked with SGE 6.1u6, in SoGE 8.1.8 we don't see it working with interactive jobs - it simply not invoked.

It does work with regular batch jobs.

Any tips on how to resolve, will be greatly appreciated.
Thank You.
