3. Sample LSF job submitting command

ap01.ccj> bsub -q sim_short -o test1.o.%J -e test1.e.%J -L /bin/tcsh  -

4. LSF resource-usage logging can be found at the directory  

    /ccj/w/r01/lsf/lsflog (access limited)
as file `date +%y%m%d`.log .  Every five minutes, (1) date, (2) lsload
(3) bqueues (4) bjobs -r -u all -l  will be logged in the file. It is
very useful to check the memory leak of the Jobs etc.
