What we want is to load up our 3 clusters with low priority, niced 19 jobs
and let them run to completion. These jobs take anywhere from a few days
to a week to complete. The problem is that I have an over demanding boss
(and users) who want their jobs to run now, regardless of what is already
queued and running. They can not and will not wait a few days (or weeks)
for their jobs to complete.

So my solution was the 2nd installation of Torque/Maui. If there is a way
to trick Torque/Maui into running multiple jobs at the same, I would like
to hear it.
