# Why is Torque changing the name of my output files?

I have a line in the script I submit to torque that looks like this:

#PBS -o /path/to/output/file/directory/file_name_with_some_underscores.out


But when I look for this output file, it's called something like this:

/path/to/output/file/directory/file_name_with_some_underscores.o36091


Where 36091 is the job ID number. I have multiple jobs running simultaneously with the same output file, but I've done that before and this has never happened previously.

Why is Torque doing this?

@woodchips: There was a meta post discussing this a while back. Questions about tools are considered on-topic. –  Dan Jan 4 '13 at 17:49
When you say that you've done "this" before, was it on the exact same machine? –  Paul Jan 7 '13 at 15:53
@Paul: Yes. Everything that struck me as at all relevant was exactly the same, though I'm unsure if TORQUE was updated. –  Dan Jan 7 '13 at 20:26
