I'm poring over the SGE documentation and I can't find a simple version kind of command. In particular, I want to read up on this system that is already installed via Rocks 5.2.2 and I want to be sure I'm reading the right docs. Is there an SGE command that will tell me the version?

It seems like there should be some kind of 'qstat --version' command, but I can't find it.

Since you are running rocks you can simply use:

rpm -qi sge


qstat -help

shows the version at the top of its output.

Erk! I swear I ran that! I didn't check the (very verbose) output well enough. Thanks. – Rick Reynolds Sep 3 '09 at 17:29
