[gridengine users] How to specify the core number for the multiple thread program in one queue?

Normally your cluster would have some PEs (parallel environments) set up. Common ones are “smp” or “make”. You can use qconf –spl to list the ones configured on your cluster.
A common commandline pattern for us is specifying cores like:
qsub –pe smp 6

    Hi all,

    I have one multiple thread program using 6 threads. I want to submit
    this program to a queue ( where the host has more than 6 cores). What
    is the option I need to specify for the core number when submitting
    the job to the queue? Thanks for your help.

    Best regards,
