[Mauiusers] scheduling = false + maui

I did a cursory search of the maui + torque archive and could only find
answers to the converse of our problem:


We previously used pbs_sched sometime ago and doing

Set scheduling=false


Essentially put the scheduler on hold.


It seems clear that maui doesn't respect or care about this.  Torque will
not contact Maui, but if Maui's RMPOLLINTERVAL is set to say 30 min, after
30 min, it polls and fills up the cluster.


So the Q:


What is the preferred method of putting a cluster on 'hold' with torque +


1) schedctl -s 


stops maui


2) qmgr -c 's scheduling=false'


stops torque from sending anything (based on events, etc)


are both strictly necessary?

2) alone doesn't seem to work, but will 1) alone work and just leave error
messages in torque log?
