[torqueusers] pbs job running slow

Here is the script we are running. This is basically a test script of 
the actual script to test the performance.

#PBS -j oe
#PBS -o qsub1.out
#PBS -m ae
###PBS -M abhig at princeton.edu
#PBS -l cput=36:0:0
###PBS -l mem=1GB
#PBS -l nodes=node022

echo "start"
export PATH=.:$PATH

source /mnt/dayabay/trunk-source
cd /mnt/dayabay/project/speedtest

time nuwa.py -l4 -n100 -H 345788 -o test1.root -m FullChain > test1.log

echo "finish"

The command I run during interactively were
# qsub -I run.sh

This took us to node022 and then
# run.sh
run.sh is the name of the script I wrote above.

When job was finished, I run exit.
