I am running a job using torque (qsub).

I would like to follow the standard error of the job as it is being output.

The normal output files (for stdout and stderr) are only being written once the job finishes.

Is there a way to do something like

tail -f /dev/stderr

for stderr of the submitted job?

You can use the qsub -e /path/to/your/file blah blah blah

Have a look at command line args
