[Mauiusers] queue priority in a mixed environment

Dear Maui Admins,

I want to set queuing priority to account for the fact that this cluster 
has two methods of running jobs, One method (preferred of course) is to 
use Torque/Maui and qsub the jobs.  However, some jobs are submitted 
directly to a node (usually 3rd party MPI jobs that use two-four cpu 
cores). 

So my questions is: How can I have Maui queue jobs to the "free" node 
first?  eg send the job to node11 and avoid node13?

Would  a node allocations policy of:
        # Node Allocation:
        NODEALLOCATIONPOLICY  CPULOAD
        NODEMAXLOAD      4.0
work?


[tom at silvio ~]# ./pestat
  node   state  load    pmem ncpu   mem   resi usrs tasks  jobids/users
  node09  free  1.00    3946   4   5866    295  3/3    1    1082 bill
  node11  free  0.00    3946   4   5866    383  1/1    0
  node12  free  0.00    3946   4   5866    322  2/2    0
  node13  free  4.46*   3946   4   5866    853  6/2    0
  node14  free  3.74*   3946   4   5866    640  8/3    0

Sincerely,

   Tom Pierce
