[gridengine users] Fwd: eqw for qsub jobs

I think the "queue instance dropped because ... full" is not related to 
your user/job problem. The dropped message is a sign from the job 
placement process that the queue instance was skipped during the active 
host select-and-job-dispatch round because it had no more job slots free 
to take new work. This would be a normal status alert on an active 
cluster with lots of jobs in 'qw' state. No big deal basically unless 
you think a resource, quota or some other thing is interfering.

State "Eqw" is usually a sign that something went badly wrong with a 
job. Its usually a sign of a significant issue like the UID/GID of the 
user not existing on the execution host or similar or it could be as 
simple as user error in a script (permission denied, path not found, etc.).

What does "qstat -j <jobID>" tell you about the jobs in Eqw state? Any 
interesting spool lots from the compute nodes or qmaster?
