[gridengine users] taming qlogin

Thank you for the suggestion. I set this wrapper around qlogin in 
addition to the ssh wrapper script I already had and it worked - I now 
have the context variable I can use in JSV.

If I do the same for qrsh, how can I distinguish interactive qrsh from a 
qrsh call in multi-node parallel job?

Another question is how to limit the number of interactive jobs per 
user. Interactive jobs could potentially use more than one core/slot, so 
I am not sure it is possible to limit via RQL. How to let users know 
that they are limited because the already have a certain number of 
interactive jobs running?

Thank you,
