The script to monitor a job's output and error files already exists.
It is called "qpeek" and ships in the contrib directory of the torque

Of course this requires that users can actually login to the nodes via
rsh/ssh (some places don't allow this).
qpeek: Peek into a job's output spool files
Usage: qpeek [options] JOBID
-c Show all of the output file ("cat", default)
-h Show only the beginning of the output file ("head")
-t Show only the end of the output file ("tail")
-f Show only the end of the file and keep listening ("tail -f")
-# Show only # lines of output
-e Show the stderr file of the job
-o Show the stdout file of the job (default)
-help Display this help message
Note: The script will likely require some modifications to make it work
at your site.
At the very least you will need to change the "$host" variable.
I also alter mine to use "ssh" instead of "rsh".
