[gt-user] questions about SEG, lost SGE jobs, and general stability

Quick question on the SGE configuration:
qconf -sconf command on our cluster shows
reporting_params accounting=true reporting=true \
If reporting=true then there should be a reporting file in
$SGE_ROOT/$SGE_CELL/common directory called reporting.
I don't know about the reporting.0 file though.
