     NAME
	  qstat	- show status of batch jobs

     SYNOPSIS
	  qstat	[-f][-W	site_specific] [job_identifier... |
	  destination...]

	  qstat	-Q [-f][-W site_specific] [destination...]

	  qstat	-B [-f][-W site_specific] [server_name...]

     DESCRIPTION
	  The qstat command is used to request the status of jobs,
	  queues, or a batch server.  The requested status is written
	  to standard out.

	  When requesting job status, synopsis format 1, qstat will
	  output information about each	job_identifier or all jobs at
	  each destination.  If	no operand is specified, all jobs at
	  the default destination, see the PBS ERS section , the
	  "Default Server".  Jobs for which the	user does not have
	  status privilege are not displayed.

	  When requesting queue	status,	synopsis format	2, qstat will
	  output information about each	destination.

     OPTIONS
	  -f	    Specifies that a full display be written to
		    standard out.  There is a default display for all
		    types of status information	which shows all	the
		    information	available for the object being
		    displayed.	If qstat is compiled with an option to
		    include a Tcl interpreter, this flag causes	a
		    check to be	made for a script file to use to
		    output the requested information.  The first
		    location checked is	$HOME/.qstatrc.	 If this does
		    not	exist, the next	location checked is
		    /etc/qstatrc.  If one of these is found, a Tcl
		    interpreter	is started and the script file is
		    passed to it along with two	global variables.  The
		    command line arguments are passed in a variable
		    named argv and the status information is passed in
		    a variable named objects . Both of these variables
		    are	Tcl lists.  The	first element in each object
		    in the objects list	is the type of object given by
		    one	of the following strings:  "server", "queue"
		    or "job".  The second element will be the object
		    name.  The third element will be a list of
		    attributes.	 The forth element will	be the object
		    text.  Each	attribute in the third element list
		    will be a list with	two elements.  The first will
		    be the attribute name and the second will be the
		    attribute value.

	  -Q	    Specifies that the request is for queue status and
		    that the operand is	a destination identifier.

	  -B	    Specifies that the request is for batch server
		    status and that the	operand	is the name of a
		    server.

     OPERANDS
	  If neither the -Q nor	the -B option is given,	the operands
	  on the qstat command must be either job identifiers or
	  destinations identifiers.

	  If the operand is a job identifier, it must be in the
	  following form:
	       sequence_number[.server_name][@server]
	  where	sequence_number.server_name is the job identifier
	  assigned at submittal	time, see qsub.	 If the	.server_name
	  is omitted, the name of the default server will be used.  If
	  @server is supplied, the request will	be for the job
	  identifier currently at that Server.

	  If the operand is a destination identifier, it is one	of the
	  following three forms:
	       queue
	       @server
	       queue@server
	  If queue is specified, the request is	for status of all jobs
	  in that queue	at the default server.	If the @server form is
	  given, the request is	for status of all jobs at that server.
	  If a full destination	identifier, queue@server, is given,
	  the request is for status of all jobs	in the named queue at
	  the named server.

	  If the -Q option is given, the operands are destination
	  identifiers as specified above.  If queue is specified, the
	  status of that queue at the default server will be given.
	  If queue@server is specified,	the status of the named	queue
	  at the named server will be given.  If @server is specified
	  or there is no destination specified,	the status of all
	  queues at the	named server will be given.

	  If the -B option is given, the operand is the	name of	a
	  server.

     STANDARD OUTPUT
	  If job status	is being displayed and the -f option is	not
	  specified, the following items are displayed on a single
	  line,	in the specified order,	separated by white space:

	       -  the job identifier assigned by PBS.
	       -  the job name given by	the submitter.

	       -  the job owner

	       -  the CPU time used

	       -  the job state:
		    E -	 Job is	exiting	after having run.
		    H -	 Job is	held.
		    Q -	 job is	queued,	eligable to run	or routed.
		    R -	 job is	running.
		    T -	 job is	being moved to new location.
		    W -	 job is	waiting	for its	execution time
			 (-a option) to	be reached.
		    S -	 (Unicos only) job is suspend.

	       -  the queue in which the job resides

	  If job status	is being displayed and the -f option is
	  specified, the full display for each job consist of the
	  header line:
	      Job Id:  job identifier
	  Followed by one line per job attribute of the	form:
	      attribute_name = value

	  If queue status is being displayed and the -f	option was not
	  specified, the following items are displayed on a single
	  line,	in the specified order,	separated by white space:

	       -    the	queue name

	       -    the	maximum	number of jobs that may	be run in the
		    queue concurrently

	       -    the	total number of	jobs in	the queue

	       -    the	enable or disabled status of the queue

	       -    the	started	or stopped status of the queue

	       -    for	each job state,	the name of the	state and the
		    number of jobs in the queue	in that	state.

	       -    the	type of	queue, execution or routing.

	  If queue status is being displayed and the -f	option was
	  specified, the full display for each job consist of the
	  header line:
	      Queue:  queue_name
	  Followed by one line per queue attribute of the form:
	      attribute_name = value

	  If batch server status is being displayed and	the -f option
	  is not specified, the	following items	are displayed on a
	  single line, in the specified	order, separated by white
	  space:

	       -    the	server name

	       -    the	maximum	number of jobs that the	server may run
		    concurrently

	       -    the	total number of	jobs currently managed by the
		    server

	       -    the	status of the server

	       -    for	each job state,	the name of the	state and the
		    number of jobs in the server in that state

	  If server status is being displayed and the -f option	is
	  specified, the full display for the server consist of	the
	  header line:
	      Server:  server name
	  Followed by one line per server attribute of the form:
	      attribute_name = value

     STANDARD ERROR
	  The qstat command will write a diagnostic message to
	  standard error for each error	occurrence.

     EXIT STATUS
	  Upon successful processing of	all the	operands presented to
	  the qstat command, the exit status will be a value of	zero.

	  If the qstat command fails to	process	any operand, the
	  command exits	with a value greater than zero.
