I've been Linux user for over 10 years, and been computing since around age 11. I got my start in programming by learning Perl on my Debian machine in high school. Since then I've learned numerous languages including C, C++, and Python. I've also dabbled in Java and assembly.

I have a bachelors degree in Computer Engineering from Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, BC, Canada.

I've worked in Japan as a CAD software developer in C++ on Windows. Not my favorite environment, but an interesting project never the less.

I'm currently employed by a Vancouver-based biotech startup working primarily on systems level projects but doing my fair share of software development.

My favorite programming language is Python and I use it nearly every day. My recent interests lie in virtualization, hpc, and large-scale systems management. I'm an active contributor to the Bcfg2 project.

The soft limit is what is enforced and the user can raise it to up to a maximum of the hard limit.

comment Howto set up SGE for CUDA devices?
You can set the value of "requestable" to be FORCED instead of YES. Then only jobs that specify a value for gpu will be considered to run in the queue. Make sure you set the default to be NONE instead of 0. Also you should just not assign the gpu complex to the non-gpu queue at all.
