[farmshare-discuss] Check barley queuing sequence?

You can see all the jobs in the queue with
	qstat -u "*"

The number of currently running jobs can be found with: 
	qstat -u "*" | grep " r " | wc -l

The number of queued jobs can be found with:
	qstat -u "*" | grep " qw " | wc -l

BTW I don't know why only the precise-long queue is running. Normally the
total running jobs is 400+ not 25.

Hi Jack,

Sorry, there is no convenient way to estimate when your jobs might run.

For an upper bound, assume each currently running job will use the maximum
allowable runtime.

Jobs in state 'qw' are not necessarily listed in the order in which they
will be run, since they often have different resource requirements.  But
again as an upper bound, you can estimate that the jobs listed above yours
will run first and will run for the maximum allowable time.

check how many jobs are ahead of mine so as to estimate the queuing time.
Or I can do nothing but staring at my jobs' priorities?
