Hello all,

I have a question for Torque users regarding the display of completed jobs
in qstat.  Do others find the listing of completed jobs by default via
qstat makes finding things in the output much more difficult and completely
unnecessary?  Having the completed jobs in qstat can significantly slow
down qstat if you have a lot (thousands) of completed jobs which is another

I asking this because I need to be able to get error codes from completed
jobs (for minutes to hours after completion).  To do this, they have to
still be in the queue.  This function is very important, but not to anyone
who runs qstat by hand.  Grid Engine had a way to get completed jobs, but
only when asked for.
