Thanks for your response.

You're right, it's a problem with the NAS or more precisely with transfer to 
the NAS I guess.
I try change mount system from NFS to CIFS and jobs run correctly with no 
problem (I launch more than 700 jobs in one submission and execute with no 

But there's a lil problem, CIFS is slower than NFS...
So for a simple and quick job there's no differences or a very little but 
for 1 000 or 5 000 or 10 000 jobs it can be very very slower I think.

-I use this (in /etc/fstab) for mount the NAS:
IP_ADDRESS:/NAS   /SHARED_SPACE_NAME    nfs         exec,rw 0
zzz,iocharset=utf8 0 0

What can I do to solve the problem ? can I use NFS with others options mount 
for better performances ?
