man qsub

       -r y|n  Declares whether the job is rerunable.  See the qrerun command.
               The option argument is a single character, either y or n.

               If  the argument is "y", the job is rerunable.  If the argument
               is "n", the job is not rerunable.  The default  value  is 'y',
