[Mauiusers] priorities depending on classes

Hello,

I need some help in configure my maui -- maui provides two classes
(cpu-8 --> octuple opteron, and cpu-2 --> dual opteron).
Sometimes it happens, that there are free cpus at the octuple server
but queued jobs for that machine (class) are not started by maui.

This is an output from 'showq -i':

 JobName    Priority  XFactor  Q      User    Group  Procs     WCLimit     Class      SystemQueueTime

   18079       24401      1.0  -     user2       gr      1 99:23:59:59     cpu-8  Thu Jun 22 13:43:03
   18120       23740      1.0  -     user2       gr      1 99:23:59:59     cpu-2  Thu Jun 22 14:16:04
   18121       23740      1.0  -     user2       gr      1 99:23:59:59     cpu-2  Thu Jun 22 14:16:04
   18122       23740      1.0  -     user2       gr      1 99:23:59:59     cpu-2  Thu Jun 22 14:16:04
   18123       23740      1.0  -     user2       gr      1 99:23:59:59     cpu-2  Thu Jun 22 14:16:04
   18124       23740      1.0  -     user2       gr      1 99:23:59:59     cpu-2  Thu Jun 22 14:16:04
   18125       23740      1.0  -     user2       gr      1 99:23:59:59     cpu-2  Thu Jun 22 14:16:04

For me, it looks like maui is not starting the jobs 18076, 18077, 18078 and 18079,
because there are two jobs queued with higher priority (18118 and 18119).

Is it possible to separate the priority by classes cpu-2 and cpu-8?

Any help is appreciated
thank you in advance

 Thomas.
