[torqueusers] regarding tracejob command

You may want to move logs to an archived area.
Then you could use the -p option to specify where they are.
Eg: tracejob -p /archive/torque/Jan2013 <jobid>

Then it would look at /archive/torque/Jan2013/*logs

This doesn't cover the corner case of a job the spans the dividing period, but it may work for you.

Otherwise, create an alias to a script that will grep as you need.

Subject: [torqueusers] regarding tracejob command

 We have torque version : 2.5.8. How can we specify the pbs server log file as argument ot tracejob command?

To see the job details of the old jobs using tracejob command, -n <no. fo days> needs to be provided, which traces through all the previous logs till it reaches that day. THis takes very long time if the job is very old.
To avoid this, and if we know the job start date, can't we specify that day's log file as the argument to tracejob, to see the job details.
Or is there any solution to this issue?
