[Mauiusers] USAGE Job priority factor?

Hi all,

I'm trying to modify our site policies so that people who have been running jobs
recently get less priority than people who haven't.

By looking at the documentation, I found in section 5.1.2
(http://www.clusterresources.com/products/maui/docs/5.1.2priorityfactors.shtml)
what I thought it would do the trick: the USAGE component.

As the documentation doesn't give any details about its subcomponents, I thought
I would just try it, but as you can see below, neither the Consumed, Remaining
or Percent subcomponents get any points (and the last four jobs are from someone
who has been using the cluster intensively during the last few months).

Does anybody know how these work?

Thanks a lot,
Angel de Vicente
