Whether it be a qsub, qrsh or qlogin submission jobs can take anywhere from 30s to 4-5min to successfully submit. In particular, while users may complain a qsub job looks like it has submitted but do nothing, doing a qlogin to the node in question will give the following:

This might at least for `qsub` jobs depend on when it was submitted inside the defined scheduling interval. What is the setting of:

$ qconf -ssconf
schedule_interval                 0:2:0
flush_submit_sec                  4
flush_finish_sec                  4

For interactive jobs: any firewall in place, blocking the communication between the submission host and the exechost – maybe switched on at a later point in time? SGE will use a random port for the communication. After the reboot it worked instantly again?
