Is there a way to not allow the bypass?
If you implement the interactive tag on the queue will that mean it
will know that the -I option was passed to qsub. In the documents
using the -I option will set an PBS environment variable to let you
know they are using it interactively. Can that be something I could
check for in a prologue script and have that script alter the job to
the interactive queue?
Is this an option anyone have tried?
