hostgroup - host group entry file format

     A host group entry is used to merge host  names  to  groups.
     Each   host   group  entry  file defines one group. Inside a
     group definition file you  can  also  reference  to  groups.
     These  groups are called subgroups. A subgroup is referenced
     by the sign "@" as first character of the name.

     A list of currently configured host  group  entries  can  be
     displayed  via  the qconf(1) -shgrpl option. The contents of
     each enlisted host group entry can be shown via  the  -shgrp
     switch. The output follows the hostgroup format description.
     New host group entries can be created and  existing  can  be
     modified  via  the -ahgrp, -mhgrp, -dhgrp and -?attr options
     to qconf(1).

     Note, Sun Grid Engine allows  backslashes  (\)  be  used  to
     escape  newline (\newline) characters. The backslash and the
     newline are replaced with a space (" ") character before any

     A host group entry contains following parameters:

     The group_name defines the host group name. Host group names
     have  to  begin  with  an  '@'  character  as  explained for
     hostgroup_name in sge_types(5).

     The name of all hosts and host groups  (see  host_identifier
     in  sge_types(1))  which  are  member  of the group. As list
     separators white-spaces are supported  only.  Default  value
     for this parameter is NONE.

     Note, if the first character of the  host_identifier  is  an
     "@"  sign the name is used to reference a hostgroup(5) which
     is taken as sub group of this group.

     This is a typical host group entry:

     group_name @bigMachines

     hostlist @solaris64 @solaris32 fangorn balrog

     The entry will define a new host group called  @bigMachines.
     In  this  host  group  are  the host fangorn, balrog and all
     members of the host groups @solaris64 and @solaris32.
