[gridengine users] Epilog to print out usage summary?

Do you rotate your accounting file at all? qacct performance suffers 
badly when the accounting file gets too big. I  drop a file containing 
the following into /etc/logrotate.d on the qmaster (replacing the path 
to the accounting file to it's location on the system...) :

/opt/sge/current/bss/common/accounting {
     # keep logs essentually "forever"
     rotate 5000

which gives me a date-stamped, gzipped monthly accounting file, so qacct 
continues to perform in a sensible way.
