It is interest. If you have done it, please show your config of torque server/queue or maui scheduler.
I have same problem and I cannot find solutions.
I want create the queue with 4 CPU for example on my 50 nodes cluster with 2 CPU on each node.
This must be any 4 CPU in cluster. But I can run jobs if I specify nodes in batch script (as -l nodes= option) 
for this 4 CPUs. In other case jobs are always Queue state and don't run. This queue plane using only for
parallel jobs on 4 CPUs.
