Hi Lei Qiao and list

It may be just the Torque/PBS configuration.

As root, try:

qmgr -c 'set  server  your-pbs-server-name  query_other_jobs = True'

Then try qstat again as a regular user.

I hope this helps.

But for my case, I only see the my own jobs when i login with a regular user but i can see it when login with a root user ( before check the jobs, I remotely login with other regular users to run some jobs with 'qsub -l nodes=1 ./run.sh')
