David, Best for qhost sort would be to change your 'cluster' names to zero-padded, if you really want that kind of sorting. Or you could create an alias like 'qhost | sort -nk 1.8', assuming 'clusterX' is always true (the 8th character is where you start the sort).
As Skylar says, if you want a custom qstat, you should probably build one from the '-xml' output.

Before I go writing bash functions to manually sort this, which might lead to output side-effects, is there any way to change the sort to a natural number sort, so that "cluster2" would appear before "cluster10," etc.? When I run qstat, the normal wraps to a second line in my terminal set to 120 columns. I could fix that by eliminating the "jclass" column, which doesn't contain any information, but I can only find ways to add columns, not take them away. Is there a way to make this column go away? _______________________________________________ users mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://gridengine.org/mailman/listinfo/users _______________________________________________ users mailing list email@example.com https://gridengine.org/mailman/listinfo/users
