Please read the man pages for: sge_conf and sge_resource_quota to get familiar.
max_u_jobs is a param that may help you.
Thank you for your reply it was helpful, but it doesn't quite solve my problem. I want to be able to decide the number of jobs that will start from the qsub queue also I'm not an admin, although I have contact with the admin I need to be able to swap the number of jobs that will run at the same time frequently. This because of the fact that sometimes we are running jobs that will crash if we have more than 2 jobs at the same node and sometimes we can run significantly more jobs at once than that. Also max_u_jobs kills the process and gives an error if we exceed this limit. I simply want to be able to tell grid engine that it should never try to run more jobs than a certain number, an error message once I try to exceed this limit is not exactly what I need.
