Hi Craig,

I've seen others' responses buy no-one has mentioned using showjobs to return info on complete jobs.  It is a potentially useful piece of the broader puzzle - though is not part of answering your specific question.

Subject: [torqueusers] Question to Torque community regarding display of completed jobs in qstat

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 hassle.

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.

Thanks,
Craig
