Hi all,

I noticed some very interesting new features in the Cluster Resources

I haven't found much details about these disk space monitoring features.

Maybe this could resolve a problem we experienced on our Torque/Maui 
Linux cluster :

we wanted to set up a per job disk limitation, preventing jobs getting 
too much disk space.
for that we used "RESOURCELIMITPOLICY     DISK:ALWAYS:CANCEL" in maui.cfg.

But with qsub on Linux systems, there was no resource concerning the 
allowed disk space for the job.
We only had the resource "file" which is the largest size of any single 
file that may be created by the job.

so we were not able to set up the disk space limitation.

Is there an issue for that in the recent Torque/Maui releases ?

Could someone point me to some details about these two new features ?
