Every day. SGE is no different in it's behaviour with
parallel jobs than any other resource manager. Well, slightly
different... syntatically mostly.

ie, here's a sample job script:

#$ -N myjob
#$ -S /bin/csh
#$ -o job.out
#$ -e job.err
#$ -cwd
#$ -pe mpi 8
# This is to reformat the hostfile into something MPICH and ScaMPI can use.
/home/sge/mpi/ $PE_HOSTFILE

# Launch the job

mpirun -np $NSLOTS -machinefile $TMPDIR/machines ./myjob
