Finished Jobs

In the case of array jobs, the finished job list in qmaster can become quite large. By switching the finished job list off, you save memory and speed up the qstat process, because qstat also fetches the finished jobs list.

To turn off the finished job list function, set finished_jobs to zero in the cluster configuration. See Adding and Modifying Global and Host Configurations With QMON, and the sge_conf(5) man page.
